INDICATIONS
QuickCat is indicated for removal of fresh, soft emboli and thrombi from vessels in the arterial system. Product is intended for single use by physicians trained and experienced in diagnostic and interventional techniques. Standard techniques for placement of vascular sheath, angiographic catheters and guide wires may be employed.

WARNINGS
Do not use without a guidewire, as vessel injury may result. Do not attempt to advance or retract the catheter against resistance until the cause of resistance has been determined by fluoroscopy or other means. Manipulation of the catheter against resistance may result in kinking of the catheter and/or vessel damage. If excessive slack or a loop in the guidewire is observed between the guide catheter and the monorail segment of the QuickCat Extraction Catheter during the procedure, the guidewire may become kinked within the vessel during catheter advancement or retraction. Remove the slack or loop in the guidewire before advancing or retracting the QuickCat Catheter to avoid catheter and/or vessel damage. If flow into the syringe stops or is restricted, do NOT attempt to flush the extraction lumen of the QuickCat Extraction Catheter while the catheter is inside the patient. Serious injury or death may result. Do not use a bent, kinked or damaged catheter as this may lead to vessel injury and/or an inability to advance or withdraw the catheter. Do not use for delivery or infusion of diagnostic, embolic or therapeutic materials into blood vessels.

PRECAUTIONS
Prior to use, check that all of the connections between components are secure and that the system has been completely primed or vacuum may be compromised. Do not tighten the hemostatic valve excessively onto the catheter shaft, or catheter damage may result. Use caution when crossing or retracting the QuickCat Extraction Catheter across a freshly deployed drug-eluting stent. Do not re-sterilize, re-process, or re-use the device. Do not replace system components with alternate components.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Use in vessels with a diameter < 1.5 mm. Use the venous system. The removal of fibrous, adherent or calcified material (e.g., chronic clot, atherosclerotic plaque).
