Pegase Thrombus Aspiration Catheter

The Pegase Aspiration Catheter is indicated for thrombus-aspiration in acute ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction.  It has a single-use design dual lumen catheter to be used with a 0.014" guide wire.  In addition there is a distal radiopaque tip marker and a proximal luer-lock port.  The proximal luer-lock port is used for connection of the aspiration line (supplied) and the aspiration syringe (supplied).  The extraction lumen comes pre-loaded with a stiffening stylet that resists kinking during delivery but is removed to allow for the removal of thrombus by aspiration.



  • Consistent shaft construction and removable stylet offering excellent crossing of lesion coupled with kink-resistance
  • Translucent aspiration lumen
  • Single handed operator device
  • Single radiopaque marker mounted on a short 0.015" distal tip to facilitate accurate positioning
  • Aspiration speed of 12.5 seconds in 6FR guiding catheter and 7 seconds in 7Fr guiding catheter*
  • Hydrophilic coating on distal part
