MEGA 7.5Fr. & 8Fr. IAB Catheters

The MEGA IAB family offers greater hemodynamic support and higher efficacy for every patient, at any height.

Why are the new sizes better for my patient?

Adding the new 30cc and 40cc MEGA IAB, the benefits of a larger volume IAB are now also available for patients smaller than 5'4" (< 162cm).

Larger volume balloons like MEGA displace more blood in the aorta during diastole, resulting in improved augmentation and unloading. With these new sizing guidelines, a larger patient population can benefit from greater hemodynamic support than ever before. Thus, why not consider using a higher efficacy IAB as your FIRST choice when hemodynamic support is needed?

Visión general

As the leader in counterpulsation therapy, Maquet is committed to developing IABs that deliver greater hemodynamic support.

 That's why we've built on the exceptional track record of the MEGA 8 Fr. 50 cc IAB to create an expanded MEGA family. With the addition of the larger volume MEGA 7.5 Fr. 30 cc and 40 cc IAB, there's now a balloon that delivers superior blood volume displacement for everyone, at any height.

MEGA: Greater hemodynamic support and higher efficacy for every patient.

Greater hemodynamic support

Larger volume balloons like MEGA displace more blood in the aorta during diastole, resulting in improved augmentation and unloading.*

  • More blood volume displacement
  • More diastolic augmentation 
  • More systolic unloading
