Finally, a Self-Centering Filter
  • Symmetrical spiral design centers filter automatically in vessel lumen
  • Bi-Trieval Technology – Designed for either jugular or femoral deployment and retrieval. This is twice the retrieval options of other filters.
  • Tissue anchors are designed to optimize for fixation and to limit penetration
  • Trans-luminal filtration design provides complete coverage and filtration across the vessel lumen
  • ePTFE filter web is designed to trap large thrombi
  • Nitinol wire form provides appropriate radial force to cover vena cava range 17-28 mm
  • Controlled filter placement via preloaded, low profile, over-the-wire delivery system
