The IMPEDE-FX Embolization Plug is indicated to obstruct or reduce the rate of blood flow in the peripheral vasculature.
The IMPEDE-FX Embolization Plug has received CE mark. The IMPEDE-FX Embolization Plug is not yet available in the United States.
The IMPEDE-FX Embolization Plug consists of a biodegradable shape memory polymer (SMP) plug with a proximal marker band. The SMP is formulated to expand from its crimped shape when deployed into a blood vessel. The expanded polymer scaffold design provides an ideal structure for fast, stable, clot formation.
Fast, Stable, and Atraumatic Delivery and Occlusion – Innovative design enables quick, easy deployment, and vascular occlusion with low radial force and high vessel conformability, even in tortuous vessels.
Unique Mechanism of Action – SMP enables efficient clotting and integrative healing. Upon deployment of the SMP plug, thrombosis begins as a multitude of clots rapidly form within the polymer scaffold.
Easy Navigation – The IMPEDE-FX Embolization Plug advances through tortuous anatomy with limited friction, minimizing the potential of damaging blood vessels.
Promotes Healing – SMP has been proven effective in promoting collagen formation during advanced stages of healing in animal models.
