Proximal Protection Device Placed Before Blockage

 

August 30, 2006

The Proxis Embolic Protection System is the first proximal embolic protection device designed for coronary applications.

The system is uniquely designed to be placed before the blockage. It works by briefly stopping and then reversing flow in the treated vessel to remove debris that may be dislodged during stent placement. The Proxis system provides clinicians an embolic protection option for treating blockages that are not suitable for deploying embolic protection devices below the blockage, including those that are very tight and those located downstream in a diseased vessel.

The system works with any standard guide wire, no catheter exchanges are required and a small amount of contrast injected into the target vessel allows excellent visualization during the intervention.
