With its 360° radiation and optimized handling, the Saturn Side Fiber has become the standard tool for endovascular laser ablation. The fiber is excellent for use in wavelength ranges of 810 nm up to 1940 nm.

The Saturn Side Fiber is available in two different sizes. Both variations have marking lines for precise surveillance of the pullback rate during surgery. In this way, the dosage of laser power can be managed accurately.

The Introducer Set is an available supplement that helps introduce the Saturn Side Fiber easily into the vein to be treated
