No balloon microcatheter with a 3 cm marker has been developed to date. We developed a new balloon microcatheter with a double marker. This balloon microcatheter, with an outer diameter of 2.8 F, has a balloon on the most distal portion with a maximum inflation diameter of 4 mm and two markers, one is on the tip and the other is 3 cm proximal to the tip. This balloon microcatheter would make interventional procedures, especially for parent artery occlusion, simple to perform and safer.
- Coil embolization
- Double lumen balloon microcatheter
- Parent artery occlusion
- Test occlusion
