Intra Aortic Balloon Catheter Kit (8F)

The MYOSISTTM Intra Aortic Balloon Catheter Kit & accessories are used to provide counter pulsation therapy in the aorta, whereby balloon inflation during diastole and deflation during systole increases blood supply to the heart muscle and decreases the work of the left ventricle.

Device Placement : 

  • The device is placed in the descending aorta approximately 2 centimeters (0.79 in) from the left subclavian artery.
  • By balloon inflation in aorta during diastole and deflation during systole, it increases blood supply to heart muscle and decreases work of  the left ventricle.


  • 01

    Highly Durable & Flexible Balloon Membrane 
    Tested for 1 million inflation-deflation cycles for functionality and performance integrity.

  • 02

    Radiopaque Catheter Tip & Markers 
    Easy to locate the MYOSISTTM deployment under fluroscopy. Catheter consists of optimized placement of radiopaque markers and radiopaque tip

  • 03

    Optimized Insertion Length 
    With 710 mm insertion length, the MYOSISTTM is placed in proper positioning.

  • 04

    Inner Lumen Diameter 
    0.028 inch diameter provides a medium to measure excellent arterial pressure
