Cook unveils five PAD products
Cook Medical is introducing six new products, which seek to treat peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and other diseases of the circulatory system.

The Bloomington, Ind.-based company said its Approach CTO [chronic total occlusion] microwires are 0.014 inches, and designed for crossing CTOs and tight lesions in the peripheral arteries.

The Advance line of balloon dilatation catheters comprises three balloons (14LP, 18LP, 35LP) that range in size and composition to treat lesions in the peripheral arteries (from the femoral through the popliteal and into the infrapopliteal region).

Used as an adjunct to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty in the iliac, the Zilver 518 RX is a self-expanding nitinol stent with rapid exchange capabilities.
