AZUR Peripheral Hydrocoil Embolization System - The Technology of Expansion
The AZUR Peripheral HydroCoil Embolization System combines a platinum coil and an expandable hydrogel polymer. In concert, these elements provide a uniquely stable and permanent platform for blood stasis, thrombus organization, and neointima formation.1-3 AZUR’s hydrogel coating undergoes limited expansion within the first 3 minutes, and fully expands within 20 minutes*. The result is greater filling and mechanical stability with fewer coils – nearly 5 times more filling volume for the 0.018" coil and 4 times more filling volume for the .035" coil (versus platinum coils of the same size). In other words, AZUR works harder so you don’t have to.
- Superior volume filling, packing density, and occlusion efficacy4
- Superior mechanical stability2, 5
- Offers the potential to use less coils which may provide cost savings per procedure5
