Teleflex to Present the Peripheral Intervention Product Portfolio from Its New Subsidiary, Vascular Solutions at the Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) 2017

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 13, 2017-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies for critical care, urology and surgery, will showcase the product portfolio recently acquired from its new subsidiary, Vascular Solutions, as well as its Arrow® Hemodialysis, Oncology and Peripheral Intervention Solutions at the CIRSE Congress being held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on September 16-20, 2017.

With the recent acquisition of Vascular Solutions, Teleflex now offers clinical solutions for minimally invasive coronary and peripheral vascular interventions, with a full line of products that give vascular specialists the tools they need to handle routine and complex cases. Clinicians worldwide rely on the quality and proven clinical utility of products from Vascular Solutions, such as the Turnpike® Catheter, Pronto® Extraction Catheter, Micro Elite™ Snare, Expro Elite™ Snare and Hunter™ Biopsy Sealing Device.

The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System offers the ability to effectively, safely and rapidly obtain high quality bone samples.1,2,3,4 Our bone lesion biopsy needle is designed specifically for multiple bone biopsies from a single cortical penetration. Using our patented handheld driver technology, the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System provides interventional radiologists a fast, reliable solution for accessing dense and hard-to-reach bone lesions.5

The ARROW-Clark™ VectorFlow™ Chronic Hemodialysis Catheter has an innovative tip designed to produce a helical, three-dimensional transition of blood entering and leaving the catheter.6 Designed for optimum performance, this tunneled hemodialysis catheter, with symmetrical tip designed to reduce loss of lock solution7 (a contributing factor in reducing the risk of thrombus adherence8), gives sustained high flows, minimizes recirculation and reduces the risk of platelet damage resulting from shear stress.9

During the CIRSE Congress on Saturday, September 16, Teleflex is running two “Central Lines and Ports” Hands-on Device Training Sessions (CLP-HDT), featuring Timothy W.I. Clark MD (Director of Interventional Radiology at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology) and Alain Storms (Product Manager, Teleflex) as presenters. CLP-HDT 1 will take place from 09:30-11:00 and CLP-HDT 2 will take place from 12:30-14:00, both in HDT Room 1.
