MAQUET Cardiovascular has announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new MEGA 7.5Fr. 30cc and 40cc intra-aortic balloon (IAB) catheters. These new, larger volume catheters will allow clinicians to provide patients with greater hemodynamic support, regardless of their height. The advanced design of the MEGA IAB family provides exceptional benefits for patients and clinicians – larger volume balloons like MEGA displace more blood in the aorta during diastole, resulting in improved augmentation and unloading.
