CD Leycom® PV Loop Catheters when used with the Inca® System, provide real-time pressure and volume data, enabling a complete assessment of cardiac function from a single catheterization.
Review the charts below to guide your conductance catheter selection process.
|4F without lumen||Electrode spacing||Long-Axis||Application|
|CA-41063-PN*||6 mm||35 ... 55 mm||Small adult ventricles|
|CA-41103-PN||10 mm||45 ... 85 mm||Normal and slightly dilated adult ventricles|
|7F with lumen|
|CA-71083-PL||8 mm||38 ... 70 mm||Small and normal adult ventricles|
|CA-71103-PL||10 mm||45 ... 85 mm||Slightly dilated adult ventricles|
|CA-71123-PL||12 mm||52 ... 100 mm||Dilated adult ventricles|
By adjusting the number of included segments (from 3 to maximal 7), each catheter covers
a range of heart sizes. The purple area marks the optimal choice.
The catheter length should match the ventricular long axis
(as measured by MRI and/or echocardiography).
Minimum length (mm): (4 x L) + (2 x La) +10.0 (pigtail)
Maximum length (mm): (7 x L) + (2 x La) +10.0 (pigtail)
* = Driving electrodes. The proximal driving electrodes may be positioned above the aortic valve.
L = Electrode spacing
La = Spacing (3 mm) between the driving electrodes
