Femoral Delivery System Aids Vena Cava Filter Placement

The Gunther Tulip Vena Cava Filter can now be delivered via the femoral artery.

March 23, 2010 – A femoral access delivery system to aid physicians placing inferior vena cava (IVC) filters was introduced last week at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Annual Scientific Meeting.

Cook Medical released a new version of its NavAlign delivery system, a deployment system designed to minimize the risk of vessel trauma and streamline filter placement. The new femoral delivery system complements the already available jugular access version.

The system is available for Cook Celect and Günther Tulip filters and incorporates a hemostasis valve to minimize blood loss. With an accompanying multipurpose dilator, radiopaque sizing marker bands and flushing sideports designed to decrease fluoroscopy time and contrast medium amounts, the NavAlign system can help physicians using image guidance to place IVC filters.
