Carotid artery stenting (CAS) as a viable therapy to treat carotid disease and stroke prevention is growing. One of the limitations of carotid stenting is the risk of liberating embolic particles during the procedure that could cause a stroke or compromise cognitive function.
The GORE® Embolic Filter features a unique diamond frame that expands the safety of neuro protection during carotid interventions in an easy-to-use solution. The diamond frame provides optimal wall apposition leading to superior filter efficiency, even in tortuous vessels with small landing zones and tight curves.
GORE® ACUSEAL Cardiovascular Patch utilizes advanced fluoropolymer technology, enabling it to "seal" around penetrating suture and decrease suture line bleeding by as much as 88 percent*. This improvement, combined with improved suture retention, multi-directional strength, and low thrombogenicity sets the patch apart from other surgical biomaterials.
