SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD SUFFER FROM SYNDROMES LINKED TO POOR VENOUS RETURN. THE CULPRIT IN NUMEROUS CASES ARE VENOUS COMPRESSION AND DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. THESE WELL KNOWN SYNDROMES ARE NONE THE LESS POORLY TREATED BY THE TECHNIQUES AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET WHEN THEY INVOLVE BIFURCATIONS.
ID Venous System is the first easy-to-use and compliant response to May-Thurner (or Cockett) and Nutcracker Syndroms.
In those indications, one or more veins are compressed by arteries. In the case of May-Thurner syndrome, the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery. In the case of nutcracker syndrome, the left renal vein is compressed by the upper mesenteric artery.
In both cases, compression occurs in the vicinity of a venous bifurcation, which renders its treatment particularly tricky.
In the case of May-Thurner syndrome, the ID Cav fenestrated endoprosthesis is introduced first. ID Branch is then connected directly to the ID Cav fenestration thanks to a patented “double” delivery system.
The unit then creates a comprehensive support for the iliocava bifurcation, enabling the opening of the compressed iliac vein whilst obviating any stent migration.
In the case of nutcracker syndrome, the ID Cav fenestrated endoprosthesis is introduced first. ID Branch is then delivered to the renal vein using a retroactive delivery system.
Once in place, the system creates a comprehensive, stable support for the bifurcation between the left renal vein and the vena cava.
In both cases, migrations are prevented and the system permits subsequent intervention without hindering catheterisation. The specific shape of ID Branch enables compliant connection, which respects anatomical movements (displacements caused by breathing). The flat spring fitted to the fenestrations in the ID Cav endoprosthesis ensures the solidity of the connection.
