trachealator

Trachealator - Treatment of airway stenosis with simultaneous ventilation

Optimize oxygen delivery to your patients during balloon dilatation of tracheal stenoses. Our new trachealator allows full ventilation during the dilation thanks to its multi balloon design. Take the time you need to perform the treatment optimally whilst supplying your patient with sufficient oxygen.
Trachealator_makro
The Trachealator is a specially developed dilatation catheter which, thanks to its unique design, allows for prolonged and, above all, gentle treatment of tracheal stenosis.
