Reliability by design

  • Tightly Woven Single-layer Mesh—Designed to minimize residual shunt immediately after placement
  • Engineered for Structure and Strength—Occludes ducts while minimizing into surrounding vasculature
  • Intaglio Wire Treatment—Designed to reduce nickel leaching

Smooth delivery in even the most challenging morphologies

  • Extremely Low-Profile Delivery—4 F catheter facilitates delivery in small vasculatures
  • Procedural Flexibility—Symmetrical design offers procedural flexibility to choose an anterograde (venous) or retrograde (arterial) approach. For infants ≤ 2kg, a venous approach is recommended
  • Predictable Placement—Disc size and shape designed for predictable positioning in the duct
