carotid embolic protection system
ANGIOGUARD™ XP Guidewire System
The Cordis ANGIOGUARD® XP Guidewire System is the first embolic protection device shown in clinical testing to achieve a relative stroke reduction of 70% during carotid stenting procedures*.
ANGIOGUARD® XP Guidewire System offers:
One of the shortest landing zones: Short filter basket enables ability to center in tortuous anatomy.
Stroke Reduction: Polyurethane membrane with 100 pores captures clinically relevant emboli and shown in clinical testing to reduce the rate of stroke*.
Self-Centering: The umbrella design centers in the vessel with high device delivery success and excellent wall apposition.
Visibility: Eight nitinol struts keep the symmetric basket in contact with the arterial wall, with marker bands on every other strut, in addition to a proximal and distal marker band to ensure high visibility during the procedure.
Excellent Crossability: Profile as low as 3.2F facilitates crossing difficult lesions.
