Terumo Launches the New AZUR(TM) Peripheral HydroCoil(R) Embolization System with Expanding Hydrogel Technology
Date:1/28/2008

SOMERSET, N.J., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest product offered by Terumo is literally expanding the company's interventional device portfolio.

Terumo Interventional Systems announces the launch of the AZUR Peripheral HydroCoil Embolization System for the occlusion of blood vessels, vascular malformations, and aneurysms. AZUR is the only peripheral platinum coil embolization system with a hydrogel coating that expands when introduced into the bloodstream, delivering greater filling and mechanical occlusion - all with fewer coils.

AZUR's hydrogel coating undergoes limited expansion within the first 3 minutes, and fully expands within 20 minutes. The result is greater filling and mechanical stability with fewer coils - nearly 5 times more filling volume for the 0.018" coil and 4 times more filling volume for the 0.035" coil (versus platinum coils of the same size).

In addition to its unique HydroCoil technology, AZUR is the only peripheral embolization system to offer a truly detachable system, giving physicians the ability to detach coils in less than a second and at the push of a button. With the capability to withdraw and reposition the coil until the coil is securely placed, the system minimizes the risk of non-target embolization and coil migration. This offers a whole new level of control, making it ideal for high-flow areas and challenging vascular anatomy.

Dr. Craig Greben, Chief of the Division of Interventional Radiology at the North Shore University Hospital on Long Island in New York, was the first physician to successfully use the AZUR Peripheral HydroCoil Embolization System in his practice. Deploying AZUR in a patient who had 2 large splenic artery aneurysms, Dr. Greben reported that AZUR filled the aneurysm with precision and ease and required fewer coils.

"We believe that AZUR enables interventionalists to approach even the most challenging anatomy with new capability and confidence," says Fernando Yuste, Marketing Manager of Interventional Products for Terumo Interventional Systems. "With the initial feedback that we've received from physicians, we're predicting that AZUR will be the new gold standard for endovascular occlusion of vascular lesions."
