New Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Registry Data Show Clot Quickly Removed, Blood Flow Restored in Large Patient Registry
Date:3/17/2008

Interventional Radiology DVT Treatment Should Become a Standard of Care

WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Registry data for more than 500 patients presented today at the Society of Interventional Radiology's 33rd Annual Scientific Meeting show deep vein thrombosis (DVT) treatment with the Trellis device breaks up a blood clot in most patients much quicker than using a drug alone. Using imaging, the device is guided directly to the clot via a catheter in the vein. DVT occurs when the blood clot either partially or completely blocks the flow of blood in the vein. The Trellis device removes the blood clot and restores blood flow much quicker than the current catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) technique, which uses a drug alone and can take as long as two to three days to be effective with the patient in an intensive care unit.

"It gets the clot out right away, restoring blood flow in the vein while the patient's blood becomes sufficiently thinned by anticoagulation medication to prevent blood clots in the future. Patients experience dramatic relief of pain, swelling and skin discoloration in just a few hours," says Gerard J. O'Sullivan, M.D., interventional radiologist. Presently, this is the largest commercial data registry by a manufacturer to assess the effectiveness and safety of this type of treatment for DVT.

"This is a very significant advance in DVT treatment, which hasn't changed in more than 40 years," added O'Sullivan. "The procedure is now so commonplace where I work that the ER, oncology and general medicine doctors all refer patients directly to me for this procedure because it works so well and is so safe. With the aid of the Trellis device, this interventional radiology procedure could really change the way DVT patients are treated and should become a standard of care," he said.

The Trellis device combines the use of clot-busting drugs with a drug dispersion device to break up the clot, providin
