Venous disease is complex, progressive, and unpredictable1,2

If left untreated, the symptoms of this disease can become progressively more debilitating and seriously decrease quality of life. In some instances, it can be life-threatening.1

Cook Venous Therapies program

We take a patient-focused approach to tackling the spectrum of venous diseases. We understand that patients with deep venous disease can present with unique challenges and at any stage of the venous disease progression cycle. Cook Medical’s solutions have been designed to stop progression and/or minimize the impact of deep venous disease.

A disease this complex requires more than products

Cook recognizes the complexity of venous disease and that it will require more than just products to improve outcomes for patients. We are committed to driving development of venous therapies for the benefit of the patient, and will achieve this through multiple efforts:

  • Offering and expanding our portfolio of solutions for venous therapies based on user needs and in collaboration with physicians, including venous stenting, vena cava filters, retrieval sets, and crossing catheters
  • Sharing scientific evidence related to the treatment of venous disease
  • Educating our customer support teams to better support physicians treating patients with venous disease
  • Developing educational programs for medical professionals
  • Advocating for data-driven patient and market awareness initiatives

Prevent recurrent pulmonary embolism

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening condition that can be prevented. While anticoagulation therapy is the gold standard of prevention, a subset of patients at risk are contraindicated for anticoagulation, even if for a short period of time. In those instances, inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are the only option available to protect against PE.

Once protection from PE is no longer necessary, filter retrieval should be considered. Filter retrieval should be attempted when feasible and clinically indicated. Filter retrieval is a patient-specific, clinically complex decision; the decision to remove a filter should be based on each patient’s individual risk/benefit profile.

Manage deep venous obstruction

Iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction may be due to inadequate recanalization of a previous deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or external compression resulting in symptomatic venous hypertension. Recanalization is necessary in cases where iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction needs to be treated. Cook Medical offers a solution to recanalize the vessel by crossing the lesions with the TriForce peripheral crossing set, offering the opportunity to stent the lesion with the Zilver Vena Venous Self-Expanding Stent.
