  • PFM medical´s new occlusion system, specifi cally developed for the trans-catheter occlusion of medium to large PDAs (Persistent Ductus Arteriosus). The patented nitinol wire mesh is shaped into a cylindrical plug with a retention disc. Sewn in polyester patches promote endothelialisation and accelerate occlusion.

    Patented single-wire design

    The implant is knitted from a single nitinol wire. This gives the distal disc a very low profile with no connecting hubs.

    Re-inforced retention disc

    The re-inforced retention disc facilitates the implantation. The polyester fabric facing the aorta promotes accelerated endothelialisation.

    Membranes for immediate closure

    2–4 membranes (depending on the size) are sewn into the implant and one membrane is sewn at the aortic face to ensure immediate closure in the cathlab and to promote endothelialisation.

    Flexible adaptive design

    Optimal compromise between flexibility and strength, to adapt to various ductus anatomies and to close even larger PDAs.

    Safe and simple device release

    The unique release mechanism is easy of use, while enabling a soft and tension free release.
