Cardia Septal Occluders
The Cardia family of products has been developed for the transvenous closures of certain types of Congenital Heart Defects. The devices are introduced through standard venous sheaths and offer a safe and reliable method for the percutaneous closure of PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale), ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) and for the modification of a Fenestrated Fontan.
All of these procedures can be performed without the need for open-heart surgery.
Many patients are admitted to the hospital in the morning and return home that afternoon or the next day
without the need for lengthy recovery periods often needed after surgery.
The Cardia Ultrasept self-loading septal occluders for PFO and ASD closure:
Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Closure Device
• Super low profile
• Circular design
• Self-centering mechanism
• Right side retrievable
• Conforms naturally to any septum
• Hands-free loading
The dual articulating sails along with the patented centering mechanism allows for easy deployment of the device as well as a super low profile within the atria.
The Ultrasept is fully and easily right side retrievable. The left and right side sails do not require reloading before further deployment.
The patented self centring stent is incorporated into the device for optimal positioning and repositioning of the device within the defect. An integral locking delivery and retrieval mechanism ensures safe and stable employments.
The patented and unique tufted centre-post allows for unsurpassed closure rates of 92%+ in PFO closures.
