Vascular Solutions releases Minnie support catheter
Vascular Solutions has launched its Minnie support catheter, designed to provide guidewire support and exchange for complex interventions, with versions for use with 0.014-inch, 0.018-inch and 0.035-inch guidewires.

The Minneapolis-based company said its Minnie support catheter features a tapered distal tip to facilitate guidewire control, combined with a low-crossing profile for navigating small vessels and crossing tight lesions. Its single-layer polymer design offers flexibility with tracking, while its fully embedded radiopaque markers--a feature that eliminates exposed metal--allow the operator to confirm positioning and assess lesion length.
