Embolization of Collateral Vessels

June 19, 2009
7:00 AM EDT
Your Time:
From Cleveland Clinic

Join Dr. Richard Krasuski at the Cleveland Clinic as he uses a case study approach to demonstrate the percutaneous approach to closing collateral vessels using AMPLATZER® Vascular Plugs. Collateral vessels are not uncommon in patients with various forms of congenital heart disease. In some patients they can contribute to pulmonary hypertension and occassionally even provide the pathway for a blood clot resulting in stroke. In tetralogy of Fallot patients, such lesions can result in considerable shunting and left sided heart failure. Their occlusion can help facilitate surgery. Dr. Krasuski will review each of these scenarios and describe how he managed them in his patients.

This webcast will include:
  • An overview of collateral circulation, why it can be disadvantageous, and when to consider percutaneous or surgical occlusion
  • Available devices for closure and advantages of the AMPLATZER Vascular Plugs over coils
  • Vascular access techniques and product selection
  • Complex case study presentations of collateral circuits with closure using the AMPLATZER Vascular Plug and clinical outcomes
