Use of the Hourglass peripheral embolisation device: early experiences

Use of the Hourglass peripheral embolisation device: early experiences We evaluated a novel intravascular plug, the Hourglass peripheral embolisation device (PED). We describe, for the first time, the use of this device and discuss its potential applications. The device was deployed in nine patients over a six-month period at a single institution by two different operators. Five patients underwent renal artery embolisation, three underwent gonadal vein embolisation for a varicocele, and a single patient underwent embolisation of the gastroduodenal artery. We recorded the indications, success rate, and the procedure-related complication rate in all patients. We also evaluated the satisfaction of the operators with the device using a post-procedure evaluation form. Technical success was achieved in 9/9 (100%) cases. Unanimous feedback was obtained from the operators (100% agreement). The usability of the delivery system, device deployment, and device visibility under fluoroscopy were rated as easy in 9/9 (100%) cases. The ease of repositioning was rated as good in both cases where this was attempted. The device trackability was rated as good in 9/9 (100%) cases. There were no procedure-related complications. The Hourglass PED is potentially useful for the embolisation of small-to-medium sized vessels. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Radiology Experimental Springer Journals

Abstract

We evaluated a novel intravascular plug, the Hourglass peripheral embolisation device (PED). We describe, for the first time, the use of this device and discuss its potential applications. The device was deployed in nine patients over a six-month period at a single institution by two different operators. Five patients underwent renal artery embolisation, three underwent gonadal vein embolisation for a varicocele, and a single patient underwent embolisation of the gastroduodenal artery. We recorded the indications, success rate, and the procedure-related complication rate in all patients. We also evaluated the satisfaction of the operators with the device using a post-procedure evaluation form. Technical success was achieved in 9/9 (100%) cases. Unanimous feedback was obtained from the operators (100% agreement). The usability of the delivery system, device deployment, and device visibility under fluoroscopy were rated as easy in 9/9 (100%) cases. The ease of repositioning was rated as good in both cases where this was attempted. The device trackability was rated as good in 9/9 (100%) cases. There were no procedure-related complications. The Hourglass PED is potentially useful for the embolisation of small-to-medium sized vessels.
