TorFlex™ Transseptal Guiding Sheath

TorFlex™ Transseptal Guiding Sheath

The TorFlex™ Transseptal Guiding Sheath is designed to be smooth and controlled. It advances smoothly across the septal tissue into the left atrium,it provides controlled movements in the left atrium due to its high torquability .

 

Features
  • Multiple distal curves available
  • Smooth transition from dilator to sheath
  • Sleek profile of sheath wall for tight fit around the dilator
  • Special braid composite design for ideal torque transmission
  • Precise catheter and sheath manipulation response in left atrium
  • Locking dilator: Secures dilator in sheath
  • Hemostatic valve: Prevent backflow and air ingress
  • Sideport: Aligned with distal curve
  • Three-way stopcock: For flushing and aspiration
  • Radiopaque marker band: Improved visibility under fluoroscopy
  • Soft tip: Atraumatic distal tip
  • Two sides holes: Protect against air ingress
