Teleflex Gets FDA 510(k) Clearance To Market Pressure Injectable ARROW PICC

Teleflex Incorporated (TFX), a global provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, announced it has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its pressure injectable ARROW PICC preloaded with the ARROW VPS Vascular Positioning System Stylet. The ARROW VPS replaces the need for confirmatory chest X-ray in the presence of a stable Blue Bullseye by using real-time intravascular Doppler, ECG and advanced algorithmic logic to notify the clinician that the catheter tip has reached the optimal location. The preloaded option improves clinician ease of use for vascular navigation and catheter tip positioning.

From a workflow perspective, the preloaded ARROW PICC benefits clinicians by saving the time and process of loading the ARROW VPS Stylet into the catheter. Clinically, the ARROW VPS confirms accurate catheter tip position in the lower 1/3 of the SVC-Cavo-Atrial Junction, which has been proven to reduce complications such as thrombosis.
