SpiderFX™ Embolic Protection Device

Capture What Matters

Embolic protection devices are used to capture and remove debris that becomes dislodged during an interventional procedure. Embolic debris may flow downstream and block smaller vessels, resulting in procedural complications or poor patient outcomes.



Debris Matters
Debris can occur with any endovascular procedure and may lead to complications or poor patient outcomes.
Carotid Interventions: Distal embolization can lead to cerebral ischemia and stroke.
SVG Interventions: Distal embolization can lead to myocardial ischemia, infarction or slow flow/no reflow.
Lower Extremity Interventions: Distal embolization can result in occlusion of smaller distal vessels, limb ischemia and limb loss. Patients with critical limb ischemia or single vessel run-off are at a greater risk of an embolic event, as are patients with complex lesion morphology such as severe calcium.

Choice Matters
Delivery of Choice
The SpiderFX Embolic Protection Device can be delivered over any 0.014” or 0.018” guidewire or through any 0.035” catheter, allowing physicians to choose their method of delivery for successful placement even in challenging access situations.



Vessel of Choice
SpiderFX has the broadest indication among distal embolic filters in the U.S. In addition to being indicated for use in the carotid arteries and coronary saphenous vein bypass grafts, it is now the only embolic protection device indicated for use in the lower extremities.

Design Features
SpiderFX has a unique braided Nitinol filter that conforms to the vessel wall and maintains full-wall apposition during the intervention. Flow is directed into the filter’s conical design, effectively capturing debris while maintaining blood flow.
A gold Tungsten loop around the mouth of the filter and radiopaque markers allow for precise positioning and verification of apposition before proceeding with the intervention.

The capture wire (available in 190cm and 320cm) rotates and moves longitudinally independent of the filter for enhanced stability during the procedure.

SpiderFX is available in a variety of sizes (3mm to 7 mm) for optimal fit and apposition in a range of vessels.

Lower Extremity Indication:
SpiderFX Embolic Protection Device is indicated for use as a guidewire and embolic protection system to contain and remove embolic material in conjunction with the TurboHawk Peripheral Plaque Excision Systems, either during standalone procedures or together with PTA and/or stenting, in the treatment of severely calcified lesions in arteries of the lower extremities. The vessel diameter at the filter basket placement site should be between 3.0 mm and 6.0 mm.

SVG Indication:
SpiderFX Embolic Protection Device is indicated for use as an embolic protection system to contain and remove embolic material (thrombus/debris). The device also acts as the guidewire while performing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or stenting procedures in coronary saphenous vein bypass grafts with reference vessel diameters of 3.0 to 6.0 mm.

Carotid Indication:
SpiderFX Embolic Protection Device is indicated for use as a guidewire and embolic protection system to contain and remove embolic material (thrombus/debris) while performing angioplasty and stenting procedures in carotid arteries. The diameter of the artery at the site of the filter basket placement should be between 3.0 mm and 7.0 mm.
CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. Indications, contraindications, warnings and instructions for use can be found in the product labeling supplied with each device.
