The Platinum Class™ Flatwire Stone Basket is designed with strong stainless steel wires and a surface treated polyimide sheath to provide excellent dilation force when attempting to capture a stone in the ureter. The strong and thick stainless steel wires minimize collapsing of wires in ureter while maintaining shape. The ergonomic handle provides better control and allows a tactile 'feel' for improved performance.
The Platinum Class™ Torque-Stable Helical Stone Basket is a round wire design that allows for 360° turning of the basket in the ureter to capture a stone without trauma. The helical design helps in the capture of smaller stone fragments as it is rotated during the capture process. The basket wires tend to sweep the stones off the ureter walls.
- Nitinol drive wire provides a torque stable basket for 1:1 turning ratio.
- PTFE coated sheath provides a slippery surface for smooth navigation.
- Ergonomic handle provides tactile feel for easier stone manipulation.
- Removable handle allows removing of the sheath in case of emergency.
