Cordis Announces FDA Clearance of the ADROIT™ Guiding Catheter

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cordis Corporation today announced it has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration of its latest innovation in guiding catheters: the ADROITTM 6F Guiding Catheter.

“The new ADROITTM Guiding Catheter, allows physicians to have more options for treating a wide range of challenging cases. It accommodates easier advancement of devices with its 0.072’ diameter, the largest inner diameter of any guiding catheter in the U.S., while providing better support and control at the same time. These features enhance treatment options for physicians, including the treatment of cases with complex lesions and those to be conducted using the radial approach,” said Celine Martin, Worldwide President, Cordis Corporation.

The ADROITTM Catheter’s innovative hybrid braid wire technology not only enables the production of a guide catheter with the largest lumen size on the U.S. market today, it also facilitates better control and back up support. In addition, the new innovative design incorporating a flexible distal segment and soft longer tip allows atraumatic placement and stability. The ADROITTM Guiding Catheter provides a wide range of shapes, including extra back-up shapes and radial specific shapes to support treatment needs of various coronary anatomies.

“Our vision at Cordis is to transform cardiovascular care, a field in which incredible progress has been made over the last decade, but one in which much more remains to be done. We are excited for the launch of our new ADROITTM Guiding Catheter as it complements our guide catheter portfolio with its technological and design advances. We will continue to deliver innovative solutions that save lives and improve the quality of life for people around the world,” concluded Martin.
