The Phoenix atherectomy system combines the benefits of existing atherectomy systems to deliver a unique atherectomy option to help physicians tailor the treatment approach for each patient.¹ It cuts, captures, and clears diseased tissue with one insertion. Phoenix treats a broad range of tissue types, from soft plaque to calcified arteries, and can be used for lesions above and below the knee.²,³



Offering of 3 catheter diameters has been shown to effectively treat most peripheral vasculature.⁴
• 1.8 and 2.2mm tracking catheters are suited for treating small vessels or highly stenosed lesions.
• 2.2 deflected catheter suited for more lumen gain in above and below the knee lesions.*
• 2.4mm (deflecting) catheter is suited for larger vessels or eccentric lesions.³
Front cutter || KBA1

Front cutter

Front cutter clears tissue in a way that may help reduce potential trauma to the vessel.³
Capture and clearance || KBA1

Capture and clearance

Continuous capture and passive clearance of debulked material into the catheter resulted in a <1% rate of symptomatic distal emboli in the EASE trial.⁴
Ease of use || KBA1

Ease of use

Phoenix is battery-powered and handle-operated. No capital equipment or additional procedural accessories are required.
Deliverability || KBA1


Low-profile, front-cutting design allows for direct lesion access without having to first pass a nosecone. The over-the-wire design aids in trackability and pushability of catheter.
  • 1. Rotational atherectomy refers to the Phoenix family of products. 2.4mm deflecting catheter and 2.2 mm auto-deflected catheter have directional cutting ability.
  • 2. Monitor flow of excised material into the disposal reservoir during operation of the Catheter. If flow of excised material ceases during the procedure, this is a sign that the Catheter drive system (cutter, torque shaft, or Handle motor drive) may not be operating properly.
  • 3. The Phoenix atherectomy 1.8 mm tracking catheter is indicated for vessels 2.5 mm in diameter or above. The Phoenix atherectomy 2.2 mm tracking, deflected and 2.4 mm deflecting catheters are indicated for vessels 3.0 mm in diameter or above. While the 1.8 mm and 2.2 mm tracking & deflected catheters are indicated for femoral, popliteal, or distal arteries located below the knee, the Phoenix 2.4 mm deflecting catheter is indicated for femoral and popliteal only.
