Filterlex offers CAPTIS® - a full-body embolic protection system designed to reduce the risk of stroke and other complications that commonly occur during catheter-based structural heart procedures. Invasive procedures, such as TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement) run a high risk of embolic particles being released into the blood and migrating to the brain where they can trigger a spectrum of neurological deficiencies, from cognitive impairment to debilitating stroke. Emboli released to distal organs may also result in acute kidney injury and ischemia. CAPTIS protects the surface of the aorta during TAVI procedures by deflecting, capturing and removing embolic particles without interfering in the procedure workflow.
