Vado® Steerable Sheath
Abbott’s new Vado steerable sheath is the first and only design on the market that does not use pull wires for deflection. Our patented TruVectorTM technology is a unique design that uses connected coaxial lumens reinforced with Kevlar to provide superb stability in all planes. As opposed to traditional pull wire based designs, you can rotate the Vado 360◦ without torque buildup which results in catheter whipping, thus helping you navigate the ablation catheter with precision while creating continuous, smooth lesions. Highly sensitive handle to tip response puts you in the driver’s seat, providing precise torqueability and maneuverability for even the most challenging cases.
Experience the stability you would expect in a fixed curve sheath with the freedom to operate of a deflectable sheath. With the only design on the market that allows full degree of shaft rotation without torque buildup that causes whipping, you can navigate any area of the heart with confidence.
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing the Abbott steerable sheath will stay true to form during your entire procedure, even when challenged with a dilator. Whether you are at the start or toward the end of your case, you can be confident in knowing your sheath has not suffered any loss in performance.
Consistent and dependable tissue contact is essential for efficient lesion creation. The Vado sheath delivers dependable contact both in-line and at 90 degrees, helping deliver therapy even in difficult to reach areas, such as the right inferior pulmonary vein.
