B. Braun Interventional Systems Announces U.S. Commercial Launch of NuDEL™ All-in-One Stent Delivery System for Treatment of Congenital Heart Defects
BETHLEHEM, Pa., May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- B. Braun Interventional Systems Inc. (BIS) in collaboration with NuMED Inc. announced today the U.S. launch of the NuDEL™ CP Stent® Delivery System, intended for the treatment of coarctation of the aorta and right ventricular outflow tract conduit disruptions. The announcement was made during the SCAI 2019 Scientific Sessions, taking place from May 19–22 in Las Vegas, where BIS is exhibiting at Booth #608.
The NuDEL™ Stent Delivery System is the latest state-of-the-art addition to the BIS congenital and structural heart portfolio and is a line extension to the CP Stent® family of products manufactured by NuMED. Comprised of a pre-mounted Covered CP Stent on a balloon in balloon (BIB®) catheter that is pre-loaded inside of a kink- resistant sheath, the NuDEL system provides physicians with an “all-in-one” device for the treatment of congenital heart defects.
“The NuDEL is a novel product that combines three separate devices into a single tool, which provides physicians procedural efficiency by eliminating the need to hand crimp or load a mounted stent into an introducer,” said Jennifer Gotto, B. Braun Interventional Systems Product Manager. The NuDEL System is offered in key diameters ranging from 12mm to 24mm, and lengths from 1.6cm to 4.5cm for enhanced delivery of covered CP stents.
Visitors to the BIS booth (#608) at the SCAI 2019 Scientific Sessions will be able to see the NuDEL Stent Delivery System and learn more about the company’s growing congenital and structural heart portfolio.
