Medtronic Launches Concerto 3D Detachable Coil
September 21, 2017—Medtronic announced the launch of its Concerto three-dimensional (3D) detachable coil system at CIRSE 2017, the annual congress of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe held September 16–20 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The product is now available in both the United States and Europe.
According to the company, the 3D coil is an adjunctive product to the existing Concerto Helix line and is indicated for arterial and venous embolization in the peripheral vasculature.
The device's complex shape allows physicians to frame the treatment area by creating a scaffold. In addition, the coil also contains fibers that increase thrombogenicity, stated Medtronic.
