The Everest pushes the boundary in terms of performance and safety and is viewed by interventional cardiologists across the world as a high quality workhorse PTCA catheter.

Key performance characteristics of the Everest are:

excellent crossing due to innovative features

atraumatic tip, created by our proprietary bonding and shaping technology.

  • Low profile
  • Graduate taper
  • Flexible performance
  • Kink resistant


low profile Wig Shape Design “tip to balloon” transition for smoother crossing results.

  • Lesion entry profile 0.016” (0.40 mm)
  • Distal balloon profile 0.023” (0.58 mm)
  • Proximal balloon profile 0.025” (0.63 mm)


newest generation of hydrophilic coatings, covering tip to distal shaft, including the folded balloon.

  • Eliminates catheter friction
  • Obviate the release of particles
  • Remains durable during multiple usages

workhorse standards redefined

  • Superior Re-wrap incorporated the latest insights on re-folding and re-wrap interactions.
