Pressure Products : SafeSept Needle Free Transseptal Access System
Transseptal Access without a Transseptal Needle! The SafeSept Needle Free is specially designed to replace a transseptal needle while crossing the interatrial septum at the fossa ovalis with improved safety and less force when supported by a transseptal introducer.
SafeSept® Needle Free Transseptal Guidewire turns the stress that accompanies every transseptal stick into a routine, “no hassles” procedure. When used in conjunction with a transseptal dilator and introducer, creates the primary puncture in the interatrial septum, without the need for a transseptal needle, providing access through the septum from the right side of the heart to the left side.
SafeSept NF is a 150cm long, 0.0315 inch diameter nitinol guidewire specifically designed for safer and easier transseptal puncture. The very sharp tip of the SafeSept NF easily perforates and crosses the fossa. Unsupported by the dilator and sheath, the tip of the guidewire assumes a ‘J’ shape, rendering it incapable of further tissue penetration.
A radiopaque coil along the shaft allows for fluoroscopic visualization of the wire within the left atrium while proximal marker bands help determine the approximate location of the SafeSept NF tip in relation to the tip of the dilator.
Once proper guidewire location is confirmed, advancement of the transseptal dilator and sheath “over the wire” into the left atrium is accomplished without the need for a transseptal needle.
The all new SafeSept® Needle Free Transseptal Guidewire makes access easier, especially in difficult or even previously failed cases, improving the safety of whatever introducer system you are currently using… and without the need for a transseptal needle.
