CO2 for angiography is a safe alternative to iodine-based or low-osmolar contrast media. Its use is as straight forward as with a conventional DSA.

• Renal Insufficiency
• Intolerance to iodine-based contrast medium
• Hyperthyroidism
• Presentation of Pathological shunts
• Search for sources of haemorrhage
• Display of abdominal aortic aneurysm
• Reduce the side-effects of iodine-based contrast medium

Range of Applications:
• Pelvic arteries
• Arteries of legs
• Renal arteries
• Visceral arteries
• Haemodialysis shunts
• Venous Imaging (max. 40 ml per injection)
• Imaging of retrograde portal artery with TIPS

The Sinus-venous stent is OptiMed’s most powerful stent. It is especially developed for venous indications. The unique hybrid design combines radial force with high flexibility, which is necessary to overcome heavy venous obstructions.

• Made seamlessly from one piece nitinol
• High-grade electro-polishing
• No significant stent shortening
• Application device with radiopaque markers
• Smooth-running pull-back technique
• Anti-jump technique for exact stent placement
• Braided sheath and flexible tip

• Recurring iliofemoral vein thrombosis
• Post thrombotic syndrome
• May-Thurner Syndrome
• Deep vein Thrombosis (DVT)
• Tumor-related stenoses

This is a high-lumen nitinol stent dedicated for aorta, vena cava and Endoleak type 1a and 1b

• Aortic stenosis and dissections
• Vena cava compression syndrome
• Obstructions of the vena cava
• Endoleak type 1a and 1b

• Outstanding radial force due to the closed-cell stent design especially developed for straight vessel segments
• Tantalum markers on stent ends for excellent visibility
• Anti-jump Technique TM to avoid stent migration during the stent deployment
