Glider

A New Dimension for Crossing

From the Glider family of balloons, the GliderfleX® PTA Balloon Catheter is designed to support a broad range of challenging angioplasty needs. This high performance Over-The-Wire (OTW) balloon features exceptional maneuverability and crossability. Combined with rapid inflation/ deflation times and controlled balloon compliance, GliderfleX® offers optimal results in treating distal peripheral vessels, especially in the lower extremities.
