Bloomington, Ind. – At this year’s Vascular Interventional Advances (VIVA) conference, Dr. Anthony Comerota presented data on the Zilver® Vena Venous Self-Expanding Stent that demonstrates durable patency and symptom relief in patients over an extended period of time.

Cook Medical’s Zilver Vena Venous Self-Expanding Stent

Zilver Vena is a self-expanding stent designed to meet the needs of patients suffering from symptomatic iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction. When implanted in a patient, Zilver Vena expands to restore venous flow.

At the VIVA conference, the data presented were gathered from the Zilver Vena VIVO US Study. The study involved 243 patients who were reflective of a real-world population, including representations of acute and chronic disease as well as thrombotic and non-thrombotic lesions. Key highlights of the study include:

“We are proud to share the Zilver VIVO data at the VIVA conference,” said Mark Breedlove, vice president of Cook Medical’s Vascular division. “We know that venous disease is a serious and complex condition. These data are a milestone in our commitment to driving venous therapies.”
