EOS achieves instant vessel occlusion
The EOS Plug is made of a spiral scaffold included in an impermeable “sock”. The scaffold is a self-expandable nitinol flat wire. The outer membrane is made of ePTFE.
This plug comes pre-loaded on a delivery catheter, which the operator inserts up to the targeted occlusion site through a standard guide-catheter or guide sheath.
Once the plug’s scaffold deployment is triggered, by pulling a handle, it touches firmly the vessel wall, and the surrounding membrane stops instantly the flow.
Reduce procedure time and radiation exposure
Compared to coils or mesh implants, which rely on blood clotting to achieve embolization, the EOS Plug’s immediate occlusion offers a very significant reduction in procedure time and in Fluoroscopy time, reducing the radiation exposure.
EOS has other great benefits
- Excellent radial strength provides firm placement and minimizes chance of migration
- Can be inserted antegrade or retrograde to the flow
- 15cm distal end of the delivery catheter, including the soft implant tip, is highly flexible and tracks tortuous vascular environments
- Opacity of the nitinol ribbon allows for excellent visualization, allowing precise and controlled positioning
- No significant artefact at follow-up imaging with CT/MRI
Embolization of all peripheral vessels (within the 3 to 11mm diameter range), such as:
- Iliac artery (EVAR can be performed just after)
- Splenic artery
- Renal artery
- Gastro-Duodenal artery
- Spermatic vein
- Ovarian vein
- Portal vein , TIPS
- Vascular Malformations
- Peripheral aneurysms
