Argon Medical Devices, Inc. Announces the Commercial Launch of the SKATER(TM) Mini-Loop Drainage CatheterFRISCO, Texas, Aug. 20, 2021 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Argon Medical Devices, Inc., a leading manufacturer of medical devices for interventional procedures, announced the commercial launch of SKATERô Mini-Loop Drainage Catheters in the United States and the European Union.
The SKATERô Mini-Loop is a drainage catheter placed through the skin using imaging guidance as a minimally invasive way to remove or drain an unwanted fluid collection. The SKATERô Mini-Loop Drainage Catheter is an expansion of Argon's SKATERô All-Purpose and Nephrostomy drainage portfolio, and it uses a 40% smaller loop to help secure the catheter and drain fluid from smaller cavities.
"Argon's Mission is to deliver innovative, best-in-class medical devices to improve the customer experience and the lives of their patients. We are excited to complete our SKATERô portfolio of drainage solutions and celebrate this next launch in our Year of Innovation," said George A. Leondis, President and CEO of Argon Medical Devices.
"The SKATERô Mini-Loop Drainage Catheter is easily inserted and forms a tight loop formation to prevent drainage occlusion. Unlike other drainage catheters in the class, SKATERô Mini-Loop is compatible with alcohol and has durability to resist kinking, which is important to me." said Dr. Sujoy Menon, an Interventional Radiologist at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. Dr. Menon and Dr. Sayed Ali, a resident of the Rutgers Medical School, were the first physicians in the United States to use the SKATERô Mini-Loop Drainage Catheter.
Argon Medical Devices introduced several new devices in the biopsy, drainage, and vascular therapy segments in 2020, despite the global pandemic. The company refers to 2021 as its Year of Innovation because it plans to launch even more innovative new products throughout the year to help facilitate interventional vascular and oncology procedures.
