Terumo Interventional Systems Launches
Pinnacle® R/O II HiFlo for Superficial Access

SOMERSET, NJ, January 11, 2007 - Terumo Interventional Systems, a strategic business unit of medical device manufacturer Terumo Medical Corporation, has introduced an addition to its line of Pinnacle sheaths; the Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo Introducer Sheath. This product launch further advances Terumo’s leadership position in endovascular medicine.

The new 4 cm, stiff introducer sheath features the Pinnacle’s recognized smooth transition which facilitates access to difficult superficial sites that may also be close to the location of a lesion. In addition, a larger diameter side flow tube allows a higher flow rate of fluids.

“With the addition of the Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo, the Pinnacle line now includes a product specifically designed for the special needs of superficial access procedures,” said John Rooney, Vice President Marketing, Terumo Interventional Systems. “Our customers told us they needed a more efficient way to access and complete these procedures, and we believe the Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo fulfills that need.”

The Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo also features a radiopaque marker band 5 mm from the tip for enhanced visibility, a laminar flow sheath housing with a 45? side tube take-off to improve flow dynamics, and a detachable 3-way stop cock.
