Medtronic has received CE Mark approval for the Sprinter Legend Semicompliant Rapid Exchange balloon dilatation catheter for use in coronary angioplasty procedures.

During angioplasty procedures, a balloon catheter is used to open the blood pathway in coronary arteries before a stent is implanted, according to the medical device company.

The Minneapolis-based Medtronic will begin the launch of the product immediately in Europe, Asia, and Africa. The Sprinter Legend is not approved in the United States.
