The Paladin System is designed to reduce the risk of stroke by providing extra protection during post-dilation.

Paladin®

Carotid Post-Dilation Balloon System with Integrated Embolic Protection

Despite the widespread use of embolic protection devices, the risk of stroke remains one of the biggest challenges in carotid artery stenting, especially in the critical procedural stage of post-dilation. The Paladin Carotid Post-Dilation Balloon System with Integrated Embolic Protection contains an angioplasty balloon and an integrated 40 μm filter, coupled together for the first time. Whether the operator chooses to use a distal filter or a proximal occlusion as a primary method of embolic protection, the additional protection provided by the Paladin filter can provide an added measure of protection and efficiency in carotid stent procedures.

INDICATIONS FOR USE: The Paladin Carotid Post-Dilation Balloon System with Integrated Embolic Protection is indicated for post-dilation of a deployed self-expanding stent in the carotid artery.

Stroke Protection
When it Matters Most

Ischemic stroke risk remains unacceptably high in carotid stent procedures, even with the use of conventional embolic protection devices. Some groups such as symptomatic patients and octogenarians are at higher risk than others.¹

Size Matters
Paladin Captures What Others Miss2

  • The Paladin captures smaller emboli2. Paladin pore sizes ≈ 40 μm while commercially available filters are generally greater than 100 μm.
  • Better wall apposition (capture efficiency) by being able to adjust the filter diameter to suit the patient’s anatomy.
“The highest risk of embolization during CAS is in post-dilation. Therefore, the biggest opportunity to reduce risk is during this phase.”
Dr. William Gray
