Captures What Matters
SpiderFX™ Embolic Protection Device
Embolic protection devices are used to capture and remove debris that becomes dislodged during an interventional procedure. Embolic debris may flow downstream and block smaller vessels, resulting in procedural complications or poor patient outcomes. That is why Medtronic has weaved innovation into a design that matters for your patients.
Debris can occur with any endovascular procedure and may lead to complications or poor patient outcomes.
Carotid Interventions: Distal embolization can lead to cerebral ischemia and stroke.
SVG Interventions: Distal embolization can lead to myocardial ischemia, infarction or slow flow/no reflow.
Lower Extremity Interventions: Distal embolization can result in occlusion of smaller distal vessels, limb ischemia and limb loss. Patients with critical limb ischemia or single vessel run-off are at a greater risk of an embolic event, as are patients with complex lesion morphology such as severe calcium.
