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
