The Twin-Pass dual access catheter is a dual lumen catheter designed for use in the coronary and/or peripheral vasculature. The Twin-Pass catheter (Models 5200 and 5230) consists of an over-the-wire (OTW) lumen that runs the length of the catheter and a rapid exchange (RX) delivery lumen on the distal segment. The Twin-Pass catheter has a working length of 135cm and is compatible with various guidewire diameters.
Model 5200 also has hydrophilic coating on the distal 18cm of the catheter.
The Twin-Pass catheter has white positioning marks located at 95cm (single mark) and 105cm (double marks) from the distal tip, respectively. The Twin-Pass catheter has a marker band located 1mm from the distal tip. Model 5200 contains a second marker band located 11mm from the distal tip to identify the distal end of the OTW lumen.
