The Lutonix® DCB catheter is a drug-coated balloon catheter that delivers paclitaxel to the arterial wall in a single, short inflation. Paclitaxel is an anti-proliferative drug commonly used to prevent arterial restenosis.
The Lutonix® DCB catheter is very similar to a standard angioplasty balloon, but contains a special coating consisting of paclitaxel and a proprietary carrier that facilitates the drug’s transfer to the arterial wall upon inflation. This highly efficient formulation allows Lutonix® DCB catheter to deliver a therapeutic dose to the artery wall, while keeping the dose of paclitaxel on the balloon as low as possible. A lower balloon drug load minimizes systemic drug exposure and is designed to maximize safety.
