Occlusive Micro Balloon Catheter

Optimizing Dynamics​

​Terumo Interventional Oncology Division presents Occlusafe, a novel micro-balloon catheter for enhanced transarterial embolization effects.1

Balloon TACE (B-TACE) with Occlusafe was developed to further improve the local control effects (flow redistribution) by altering hemodynamics under balloon occlusion.2


  • ​Flow redistribution - Occlusafe allows you to redistribute the flow in such way that therapeutic agents are preferentially accumulated in the targeted lesion.
  • Precision - Accurate navigability allows for segmental and sub-segmental catheter positioning with Terumo hydrophilic coating.
  • No reflux
    • Atraumatic procedures
    • High quality occlusive balloon
    • Complete occlusion prevents back-flow and non-target embolization3
    • Arterial flow beyond the catheter tip was maintained even after balloon inflation4
