Overview with side video or image

The Caterpillar™ and Caterpillar™ Micro Arterial Embolization Devices are self-expanding arterial occlusion plugs intended for use in the peripheral vasculature.

Features and Benefits
Innovative Dual-action Design for Rapid Occlusion*
The Caterpillar and Caterpillar Micro Arterial Embolization Devices have an innovative dual-action design with opposing nitinol fiber segments and an occlusion membrane to help support rapid embolization and provide a balance between placement accuracy and deliverability in tortuous anatomy.*

  1. The marker to marker length is the distance between the most distal radiopaque marker band to the most proximal radiopaque marker band.
  2. The maximum deployed length is the length from the distal fiber tips to the proximal fiber tips in the minimum target artery diameter.
  3. Detailed list of compatible delivery catheters can be found in the product labels and inserts.

* 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.
