Advancing the standard of care in peripheral embolization

  • A single device solution that allows for faster procedure times, less radiation exposure and lower procedural costs1,2
  • Rapid embolization even in high-flow vessels1,3,5
  • Designed for precise placement, controlled delivery and fully recapturable
  • A family of plugs for different vessel conditions
  • Limited imaging artifact4

Amplatzer™ Vascular Plug (AVP)

  • Single lobe, single layer device7
  • Platinum marker bands on both ends7
  • Select a device that is ~30-50% larger in diameter than the target vessel diameter7

Amplatzer™ Vascular Plug II (AVP II)

  • Multi-layered mesh designed to increase density and flow disturbance7
  • Six planes of cross sectional coverage7 resulting in rapid occlusion¹
  • Select a device that is ~30-50% larger in diameter than the target vessel diameter7

Amplatzer™ Vascular Plug 4 (AVP 4)

  • Simple delivery through an 0.038” guide wire compatible diagnostic catheter8
  • Easy tracking through tortuous anatomy6
  • Extended reach to distal vasculature6
  • Select a device that is ~30-50% larger in diameter than the target vessel diameter8

Amplatzer™ Vascular Plugs (AVP) Mechanism of Action

The nitinol mesh of an AVP acts as an embolic agent that promotes rapid clot formation. Each AVP creates a physical barrier to blood flow by instigating both the body’s immune response followed by a natural coagulation process.6

Indication/ Intended Use

The Amplatzer™ Family of Vascular Plugs are indicated for arterial and venous embolization in the peripheral vasculature.
