Vascular Solutions Launches EXPRO Elite™ Snare

Vascular Solutions, Inc. recently announced its U.S. launch of the EXPRO Elite Snare in partnership with Radius Medical Technologies. The EXPRO Elite Snare is a unique one-piece medical device designed for the retrieval and manipulation of objects located in the cardiovascular system, including coils, balloons, catheters and guidewires.
