MVP Micro Vascular Plug System

Peripheral Embolization

Overview

The first plug deliverable through a micro catheter*, the MVP™ micro vascular plug system redefines treatment for the mechanical embolization of peripheral vasculature. This innovative solution smoothly navigates even tortuous anatomy and enables rapid occlusion with a single device.1


INDICATIONS

The MVP micro vascular plug system is indicated to obstruct or reduce the rate of blood flow in the peripheral vasculature.


PRODUCT DETAILS

The MVP micro vascular plug system offers several clinically relevant features to support immediate vessel occlusion1 in a variety of applications.  

  • Enables the treatment of distal, super-selective vessels as small as 1.5 to 3mm in diameter2
  • MVP 3Q and MVP 5Q devices are compatible with all currently existing 0.021- and 0.027-inch microcatheters2*
  • PTFE-covered nitinol plug leads to rapid occlusion2
  • Allows for pre-detachment angiography to ascertain efficacy and location
  • Fully re-sheathable after partial or complete deployment, ensuring optimal placement2
  • Fast, reliable detachment in two simple steps2

CASE REPORTS

The following case report synopses demonstrate the effective use of the MVP system for different indications.

  • Proximal embolization was performed on a 33-year-old man with a grade III splenic laceration after trauma (A). The MVP-7Q plug was deployed and demonstrated markedly decreased but persistent flow through the splenic artery (B). Two minutes later, images showed complete embolization with reflux of contrast into the left gastric artery (C).2

  • Radio embolization was recommended for a 64-year-old man with a metastatic neuroendocrine tumor (A). Mapping angiography showed that the right gastric artery and the gastroduodenal artery (GDA) were in close proximity to the anticipated catheter position (B). The former was embolized with multiple Concerto™ Detachable Coil Systems (C). The GDA was embolized with an MVP-5Q plug after a contrast injection confirmed that it was positioned at the origin of the GDA (D). Imaging showed complete occlusion of both arteries.2

  • CT angiography of a 90-year-old woman with acute shortness of breath showed multiple pulmonary arteriovenous malformations; the largest two were in the right lower lobe. A lesion in the right middle lobe (A) was embolized with an MVP-5Q plug (B), as was a lesion in the right lower lobe (C, D). No additional embolic agents were required.2
