FEATURES and BENEFITS of the VINA CAVA FILTER

In high-risk surgical patients, Pulmonary Embolism remains a leading cause of sudden death. Fortunately there are ways to minimize the risks. When failure of anticoagulant treatment occurs or patients are contra indicated for anticoagulants the deployment of a Vena Cava Filter is recommended. These implantable devices are designed to prevent PE and their associated complications by trapping blood clots, in the Interior Vena Cava. The Redi-Tech VCF utilizes the proven conical filter shape arranged into two offset layers that effectively trap large and small emboli without compromising caval patency. Now featuring a wider leg span and thicker fixation hooks, our newly enhanced VCF resists migration across an even broader range of caval distension and higher pressures.
