Innovative drug eluting balloon that opens a window of opportunities with regard to treating coronary diseases in the best possible manner. Also available in Non-Compliant version, unique on the market!

Supported by independent scientific evidence, we offer a safe, effective and reliable tool to further enhance patient care with accurate transient local drug delivery. It is available in compliant and non-compliant versions.

Key performance characteristics of the Protégé are:

safe and easy drug delivery

  • No airborne particles and no premature release of Paclitaxel
  • Hydrophilic coating delivers Paclitaxel homogeneous to the vessel wall instantaneously upon contact
  • Hydrophilic coating delivers Paclitaxel without any excipient
  • Inflation for only 30 seconds ensures the drug delivery to the target lesion

wing seal technology

  • Drug component encapsulated using Wing Seal Technology
  • Wings remain closed prior to inflation at Nominal Pressure
  • Ensures tight balloon wrapping for reduced crossing profile

fast and complete re-endothelialization

  • Vessel healing not interrupted and stable within days after procedure
  • Re-endothelialization starts within days after procedure

no procedural limitations

  • Flexibility and characteristics of a usual workhorse PTCA balloon
  • No change in standard operating procedures or handling required
  • Multiple inflations will not lead to toxic level of Paclitaxel
  • Based on Blue Medical’s proven high-end workhorse PTCA catheter
  • Technology optimized to reach and cross the most difficult lesions
  • Optimal pushability and trackability due to balanced proximal and distal shaft transitions
  • Low profile wedge shaped design tip-to-balloon transition for smoother crossing results
  • Retrograde approach compatible
  • Full 6F Kissing Technology compatible
