The Aegisy™ Vena Cava Filter is designed for percutaneous delivery into inferior vena cava (IVC) via the femoral or jugular approach under fluoroscopy or ultrasound guidance to offer protection from PE by capturing blood clots in DVT patients.
The Aegisy™ Vena Cava Filter can be permanently placed in the IVC for PE prevention or can be removed out of the patient after a period of time (up to and including 14 days) as a retrievable filter.
The Aegisy™ Vena Cava Filter is delivered with an Introducer Kit which contains a 6F Delivery Sheath, a Vessel Dilator, a 4.5F Delivery Cable and a 6F Loader. The Filter is connected with the Delivery Cable and preloaded in the Loader.
Precisely Controlled Release
There is one nut (with screw) respectively at the proximal and the distal end of the filter to allow attachment with the Delivery Cable.
Precise positioning, accurate deployment
Avoid "Jump forward" when released
Outstanding Filtration Capability
Asymmetric lantern design
- A three Y-shaped caudal entry basket
- A six diamond-shaped cranial basket-Filtration only at this layer
- With six struts connecting the two baskets
Large capacity for clot trapping
Transverse symmetry offers great stability of clot trapping
Desirable IVC Patency Rate
Asymmetric configuration-Filtration at only one layer
Minimize the effect to blood flow dynamics after clot capture
Central turbulent shear force enables the blood flow to break the clot apart
Prevent thrombus from spreading in VCF
Maintain desirable long-term IVC patency
Dual Access - Jugular or Femoral
The filter is preloaded for femoral use. Reassemble the device according to IFU before usage in jugular. The length of Introducer sheath is 55cm.
Easy to Retrieve (As Retrievable Filter)
High success rate of retrieval
Retrieving Hook - At the end of caudal basket
Using Snare system for retrieval
Retrieval time - Up to and including 14 days
Retrieve via the femoral vein only
Safe and Reliable
Laser Cut - Fatigue resistant
6F Delivery System reduces vessel injury
Six securing anchors -Fix filter to vessel wall
Six straight struts-Prevent device from tilting
Low incidence rate of migration or fracture
