Defining Reliability and Accuracy with the EN Snare® Endovascular Snare System

Physicians understand that circumstances arise that require the use of an endovascular snare device. Some planned situations include the removal of an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, dialysis catheter fibrin sheath stripping or stent placement. Some unplanned circumstances include the removal of a sheared catheter tip, a broken guide wire or a defective stent. Regardless of the circumstance, physicians reach for a reliable and accurate endovascular snare device that allows them to efficiently remove any foreign object from the vasculature.

Merit Medical is pleased to meet these clinical needs with the EN Snare® Endovascular Snare System. The EN Snare® is the only endovascular snare that incorporates three interlaced loops designed for a unified approach to the capture of foreign objects. Each loop is wrapped in a platinum band to provide visibility under fluoroscopy. The Nitinol core wire allows flexibility to promote vessel navigation.

The EN Snare® is available in seven configurations with snare loop sizes ranging from 2 mm to 45 mm to accommodate a broad range of vessels throughout the body. The sizes conveniently overlap which allow customers to order the snare sizes that best fit their clinical needs.
