Optimal Trackability and Support

The Walrus .087 Balloon Guide Catheter System is a variable stiffness catheter that provides proximal support while maintaining distal flexibility, combining flow control, trackability, support and access. Walrus BGC is indicated for use both to facilitate the insertion and guidance of an intravascular catheter, as well as to serve as a conduit for retrieval devices. Walrus BGC features an 8+ French (OD) and .087 (ID) accommodating market leading catheters for maximum clot capture. Until now, widespread adoption of BGCs has been limited due to technical constraints. The Walrus BGC was specifically designed to address these technical shortcomings providing a .087 ID in a highly trackable catheter platform. Walrus BGC marks a big step forward in balloon guide catheter technology and for stroke patients worldwide. It’s all about diameter!
