ONYXTM Liquid Embolic System

Designed for presurgical embolization of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs), Onyx™ liquid embolic system (LES) is a pre-mixed, radiopaque, injectable embolic fluid consisting of the following components: EVOH (ethylene vinyl-alcohol copolymer), DMSO (dimethyl-sulfoxide) and TA (micronized tantalum powder).

THE ADVANTAGE OF TIME,
THE POWER OF CONTROL1-3

During presurgical embolization of bAVMs, with the OnyxTM LES system, the DMSO solvent dissipates into the blood and interstitial fluids, causing the EVOH copolymer and suspended tantalum to precipitate in situ into a spongy, coherent substance. The Onyx™ liquid embolic system begins to form a skin and solidifies over time from the outside to the inside.
