Hydrophilic Sheath Introducer


Prelude IDeal is a hydrophilic access sheath designed for radial artery access from the wrist or the hand. It fits into Merit’s extensive radial access portfolio that begins with set-up and access and includes catheters, wires, and products through to hemostasis. With its low-profile and increased kink and compression resistance, it has also become a tool of choice for distal radial access.
