Implantation of the Crux IVC Filter

Crux Biomedical's FDA-cleared inferior vena cava filter (VCF) with bi-directional retrieval is designed to trap blood clots that can lead to potentially fatal pulmonary embolisms among patients at risk. The Crux VCF is the first designed to facilitate bi-directional retrieval through either the femoral or jugular veins, a key consideration when access to one or the other vein is limited. The device’s novel helical shape was designed to self-center and to conform more closely to the shape of the vena cava, as well as to reduce bends and stress that can compromise filter integrity.
