Luminor 14m
Paclitaxel-eluting balloon catheter

The paclitaxel-eluting balloon “Luminor 14m” is a coaxial catheter (OTW, over-the-wire) designed for percutaneous transluminal angioplasties of small peripheral arteries. The guidewire runs into the inner lumen while the outer lumen is intended for contrast medium flow. The maximum diameter of the guidewire must not exceed 0.36 mm = 0.014 inches. On the catheter’s distal part, just before the tip, the balloon (inflatable segment) will dilate the artery upon inflating using infusion of contrast fluid inside it. The connector is Y-shaped, and it has two entry ports: The straight port is intended for guidewire passage. The side port allows contrast medium flow to dilate the balloon. The balloon is coated with a homogeneous mixture of Paclitaxel, a derivative of Taxol, and a physiologically innocuous matrix, the excipient. The drug’s dose is 3 µg/mm2 of balloon surface, and it is intended to avoid cellular proliferation, consequently decreasing the re-intervention rate. The drug is released from the balloon using rapid inflation so that a high dose is released in a concise period of time. To assure a sufficient Paclitaxel dosage onto the arterial wall, the inflation process must last from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Dilation of the lesion can be optimized by using longer inflation times at the operator’s discretion. The balloon is designed to reach different diameters at different pressures, as predicted by the primary packaging's compliance curve. Two radiopaque markers are located at each end of the balloon to mark its length and help the user see the catheter while navigating inside the patient. See IFU for further information.
