The "Tracker" is a highly trackable and readily exchangeable catheter which can be used to facilitate coronary angioplasty in situations where the guide wire is unable to cross the lesion and is buckling under pressure. In addition it is also useful in assessing the severity of borderline coronary artery stenoses and for local infusion therapy.
