Shape Memory Medical’s smart polymer is a smart option to embolize peripheral vascular vessels contributing to post-EVAR endoleaks. Smart polymer is radiolucent and produces minimal imaging artifact, restoring unprecedented visibility during and after the procedure. The healing properties promote rapid conversion to organized thrombus followed by collagen formation as the material is absorbed over time.
Smart Polymer for Endoleak Management
Smart polymer is the smart approach for embolization. The radiolucent material facilitates branch vessel occlusion with a high volume, conformable material.
