It’s about peripheral vascular embolisation…

The Shape Memory IMPEDE® Peripheral Embolisation Plug is indicated to obstruct or reduce the rate of blood flow in the peripheral vasculature.

Comprised of a self-expanding porous shape memory polymer

(polyurethane), IMPEDE® is crimped for delivery and undergoes a heat driven shape change once deployed in a vessel. Rapid thrombosis occurs creating an effective, stable occlusion.

  • High embolic material volume
  • Efficient, predictable space filling
  • Easily navigates tortuosity
  • Minimal artefact
  • Accelerated healing
  • Simple to use
  • Accurate placement
  • Stable occlusion

Other features of the IMPEDE® Peripheral Embolisation Plug:

  • Accelerated healing, less risk of recanalisation – Strong tissue (extracellular matrix, collagen) replaces polymer as it degrades
  • Stable clot formation – Small interconnected clots rapidly form throughout the porous polymer scaffold
  • Effective & predictable space filling – Fills large voids in a short space of time, with low radial force & low vessel trauma
  • Minimal artefact – For clear post-procedural imaging
  • Biocompatibility & excellent histologic response
