NeverTouch Procedure Kit

The NeverTouch gold-tipped laser fiber, an integral part of AngioDynamics’ advanced varicose vein treatment system. The innovation behind the NeverTouch tip is a glass weld at the distal tip of a 600um fiber. This weld results in an effective fiber diameter of 905ums and lowers the actual power density at the tip by 56% from that of a standard bare-tip 600um fiber. The net effect based on bench testing is a homogeneous ablation with less focal charring of the vein wall that is typically seen with bare-tip fibers. This technology also differentiates from competitors with other covered-tip fibers that have the same power density as a 600um fiber. The proprietary technology, which became CE Marked in 2008, maximizes tip visibility under ultrasound and eliminates chances of inadvertent fiber tip contact with the vein wall.

NeverTouch Procedure Kit Components

NeverTouch-FRS Fiber

  • Proprietary fiber technology eliminates any inadvertent contact between the fiber tip and vein wall.

  • Fiber recognition system is compatible with all AngioDynamics’ lasers

  • Available in 25cm, 45cm, 65cm and 90cm procedure kits

4F TRE-Sheath Introducer featuring our Duration Coating Technology (translucent - radiopaque - echogenic)

  • Echogenic for easy positioning and hydrophilic coating to theoretically reduce procedure time

 

 

Sheath-Lok System

  • Enables precise placement at the saphenofemoral junction by locking the fiber to the sheath, assuring the fiber stays a safe distance outside the sheath

Double-ended .035" Guidewire

  • Straight-tip and J-tip ends give you a choice when navigating tortuous anatomy

Sliding Sheath Gauge

  • Aids in marking treatment length and holding sheath in place during tumescent anesthesia delivery

Many options available

  • New .018” system eliminates the need for a 5F micro-access sheath and to exchange wires and size up, resulting in fewer procedure steps, and a potentially faster procedure time

  • New 19 gauge needle now available for physicians who prefer to insert the .035” wire directly through the needle

Convenient “kangaroo pouch” packaging

  • Micro-access kit packaged on the outside in a separate sterile pouch

 

Micro-Access Kit

  • 21-gauge, 7cm, super-sharp echogenic tip needle

  • .018" x 45cm Nitinol guidewire with stainless steel tip

  • 5F x 10cm sheath and dilator

 

AngioDynamics offers several micro-access systems to satisfy a variety of clinical needs. The chart below specifies the kit options and components that accompany the NeverTouch gold-tip fiber.
