Angiotech Pharmaceuticals announces the commercial launch of the Option(TM) Inferior Vena Cava Filter in the United States
Date:8/20/2009

t following massive PE where anticipated benefits of conventional therapy are reduced, and chronic recurrent PE when anticoagulant therapy has failed or is contraindicated. The nitinol, Option(TM) IVC Filter, with a low profile delivery system, is designed with struts which direct clot volume into the center of the vessel for maximum dissolution and preservation of blood flow, allowing for capture of clinically significant clot and protection against PE. The self-centering filter facilitates optimal positioning and stability within the inferior vena cava.

About Pulmonary Embolism (PE)

PE is an extremely common and highly lethal condition. PE is the sudden blocking of an artery of the lung (pulmonary artery) by a collection of solid material brought through the bloodstream (embolus) - usually a blood clot (thrombus) or other foreign material. PE occurs when these clots break loose and "embolize" to block pulmonary blood vessels in the lungs. According to clinical research, if left untreated, PE has a mortality rate of 30%. Emboli dislodgement can be caused by peripheral vascular disease (PVD), severe deep vein thrombosis (DVT), trauma and, prolonged immobilization often following a major surgical procedure.
