Enhancing Precision and Maneuverability in Interventional Cardiology with the Elong™ Microcatheter

Precision and maneuverability of a microcatheter are critical factors in achieving successful outcomes during complex PCI procedures in interventional cardiology. APT Medical presents the Elong™ Microcatheter series, designed to optimize support and crossability during complex procedures. With its unique features and advanced design, Elong™ microcatheter series with four kinds of options that empowers interventional cardiologists to navigate tortuous anatomies with ease.

Optimal Support for Enhanced Guidewire Manipulation

The Elong™ Microcatheter features a stainless steel mesh braided structure that provides outstanding guidewire support and device manipulation. This robust construction ensures optimal stability and control, enabling interventional cardiologists to navigate intricate vessels and complex lesions confidently. The microcatheter’s PTFE inner layer also minimizes resistance during guidewire advance operations, facilitating smoother  procedures.

Superior Crossability for Challenging Anatomy

Navigating through tortuous anatomies is a common challenge in interventional cardiology. The Elong™ Microcatheter addresses this by incorporating a hydrophilic coating on its distal end. This coating promotes smooth delivery even in tortuous anatomy, reducing friction and resistance during insertion. The microcatheter’s slightly tapered design further enhances its crossability, allowing interventional cardiologists to navigate complex lesions with ease and precision. The multi-durometer polymer tube offers a smooth transition and flexibility, enhancing maneuverability in challenging anatomies.

Multi Radiopaque Markers for Clear Visualization

Clear visualization of a microcatheter is also essential. The Elong™ 1.7F/1.9F Microcatheter offers1, 2 or 3 radiopaque marker bands, ensuring clear visualization during device placement. These markers provide clear guidance and enable interventional cardiologists to position the microcatheter within the vessel accurately. Enhanced visibility aids in optimizing procedural outcomes and further enhances the efficiency of interventional cardiology interventions.


The Elong™ Microcatheter from APT Medical elevates interventional cardiology procedures by providing optimal support, superior crossability, and enhanced visualization. With its stainless steel mesh braided structure, PTFE inner layer, hydrophilic coating, tapered design, and multi-radiopaque markers, this microcatheter equips interventional cardiologists with the tools to navigate tortuous anatomies with precision and ease. By incorporating the Elong™ Microcatheter into their practice, physicians can deliver exceptional patient treatment, overcome the challenges of complex lesions, and elevate their interventional cardiology procedures.
