* In an arterial ovine Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) study with devices implanted according to labeled vessel diameters, full occlusion at 10 minutes was achieved with all Caterpillar™ and Caterpillar™ Micro Arterial Embolization Devices (14/14). Full occlusion defined as no perfusion – no antegrade flow beyond point of occlusion. Placement accuracy and track forces were measured through pre-clinical bench studies using either an anatomical splenic artery or right gastric artery model. Pre-clinical data and bench testing may not be indicative of clinical performance. Different test methods may yield different results. Data on file, Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc.
