Three Loops Are Better Than One!
The EN Snare® device was developed by Hatch Medical’s device incubator and serves as an excellent case study for its risk-sharing business model (see press release 1 and press release 2).
Use the EN Snare® for unmatched performance in foreign body retrieval and manipulation in the cardiovascular system or hollow viscus.
- Self-sizing EN Snare® features 3 interlaced loops that combine excellent vessel coverage with superior ability to capture, retrieve or manipulate objects. Rotating EN Snare® during use provides positive engagement with targeted objects.
- Cabled EN Snare® loops with interwoven platinum strands provide excellent fluoroscopic visualization.
- Super-elastic nitinol wire provides a winning combination: superior flexibility, kink-resistance, and 1:1 torque control for exceptional steerability.
- Unique product design creates overlapping diameters within product range, thereby reducing inventory requirements.
- Highly lubricious, kink resistant guiding catheter includes a radiopaque band that is easily visible during fluoroscopy. 6F and 7F sizes feature a unique “angled” tip, which allows the catheter to be steered during difficult placements.
