Pioneers of peripheral medicine

Cook has worked alongside the pioneers of peripheral medicine for 60 years and remain dedicated to providing therapies and technologies that treat peripheral arterial and venous diseases. Globally, these impact millions of patients and require specialized devices and treatment options to improve patients’ quality of life.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) often occurs in the legs and can lead to amputation; those with the disease have a greater risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.1 Cook provided the first drug-eluting-stent, Zilver® PTX®, has shown predictable results and is the only stent with published five-year data.2 Patients with PAD below the knee can be challenging to treat, our goal is to serve as a procedural partner in treating this disease. We have designed devices to increase efficiency, improve outcomes, and preserve limbs.

Venous disease is complex and can impact patients of younger and more diverse backgrounds than other vascular diseases. We are committed to helping all patients affected by deep venous disease by building awareness of the symptoms that can progress to pulmonary embolism or venous obstruction and developing therapies to treat them.

Cook delivers a comprehensive offering of introducer sets, wire guides, sheaths, catheters, balloons, and stents that enable physicians to effectively access, target, and treat these diseases. We offer a full line of filters and retrieval sets for the prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism (PE).
