Controlled Lesion Preparation 

Focused Force Angioplasty for Safe and Controlled Dilatation

Scoreflex is a focused force dilatation balloon with a dual-wire system which creates a focal stress pattern to facilitate safe and controlled plaque modification at lower resolution pressure.

Advance a standard guidewire across the target lesion.

Advance Scoreflex over the guidewire and cross the target lesion.

Inflate the Scoreflex balloon in a stepwise fashion.

Withdraw the deflated Scoreflex once the desired result is achieved.

Scoreflex Construction


A short rapid exchange tip with the guidewire exit port proximal to the tip


A nitinol integral wire, welded from tip to hypotube, serving as one of the scoring elements


Two radiopaque markers on the integral wire aligned to the balloon shoulders

The (conventional) guidewire exits proximal to the tip and acts as the second scoring element

Catheter for excellent deliverability

Continuous hub-to-tip metallic construction for enhanced pushability, with a
combination of hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings to minimize friction

Hydro-X hydrophilic coating is a water-absorbing, very slippery coating that reduces friction during lesion crossing


Invio hydrophobic coating is a water-repelling, slippery coating that reduces guidewire friction

Low Dilatation Pressure, Big Dilatation Effect

Scoreflex is a focused force dilatation balloon that comes with a dual wire system which enables effective dilatation under lower inflation pressure. For optimal results, a gradual step-up inflation protocol should be adopted
