MVP Micro Vascular Plug System

Peripheral Embolization

Overview

The first plug deliverable through a microcatheter*, 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.

DESIGNED WITH PURPOSE

At Medtronic, we design products with your critical needs in mind.

Rapidly occlude vessels as small as 1.5mm.1

The MVP™ device is the first and only available micro vascular plug system deliverable through a microcatheter.*Illustration of Concerto detachable coil system with a zoomed-in view of the fibered coil.

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 1.5mm1
  • MVP 3Q and MVP 5Q devices are compatible with microcatheters1
  • PTFE-covered nitinol plug leads to rapid occlusion1
  • Allows for pre-detachment angiography to determine desired placement
  • Fully re-sheathable after partial or complete deployment, ensuring optimal placement1†
  • Fast, reliable detachment1

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
