Implantation of the Crux IVC Filter

This video, provided by Crux Biomedical, demonstrates the implantation of the FDA-cleared Crux VCF inferior vena cava filter (VCF) with bi-directional retrieval. It 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 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.  Read the article "Large-Scale Inferior Vena Cava Filters Study Examines Safety and Effectiveness of These Devices."
