Offering solutions

Venous disease is complex, progressive, and unpredictable. 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.1,2

Cook Medical takes 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.

Our solutions were designed to stop progression and/or minimize the impact of deep venous disease.


Deep venous obstruction

Iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction may be due to inadequate recanalization of a previous deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or external compression causing venous hypertension resulting in symptoms. 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.


PE prevention

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 to 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.
