Merit Medical’s Embolotherapy Portfolio reflects a commitment to delivering clinically proven and data-backed embolization results.
Our proprietary embolic products are the most studied on the market and allow for efficient and safe delivery and predictable outcomes. To complement our offerings, we provide excellent ongoing customer service to ensure you have the tools you need for your procedures.
Embosphere Microspheres are the most clinically studied and clinically proven round embolic, providing you consistent and predictable results for effective embolization. Elastic properties allow temporary compression of up to 33%,1 facilitating smooth microcatheter passage. Microspheres return to stated diameter after delivery, contributing to durable and targeted results.
Embosphere PRO™ Prostatic Artery Embolization Kit
Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is a technically challenging procedure that demands a predictable, targeted, and established microsphere like Embosphere Microspheres. Merit Medical’s Embosphere PRO Prostatic Artery Embolization Kit combines the power and predictability of Embosphere Microspheres with basic preparation and delivery tools for your added convenience.
EmboGold Microspheres are colored to enhance visualization during handling while still offering you the controlled, targeted embolization characteristics of Embosphere Microspheres. EmboGold Microspheres are biocompatible, hydrophilic, non-resorbable, and precisely calibrated. The product is provided in a pre-filled syringe for easy handling, superior procedural efficiency, and enhanced safety for your procedures.
HepaSphere™ Microspheres (Outside US Only)
HepaSphere Microspheres are calibrated, spherical, hydrophilic microspheres made with a proprietary copolymer design that allows them to expand approximately 4x their dry-state matter, providing you a completer and more targeted occlusion of the blood vessels.
QuadraSphere® Microspheres (US Only)
QuadraSphere Microspheres are soft and easily conform to the vessel lumen for complete occlusion that offers several benefits, including decreasing the risk of vessel recanalization,2 enabling greater tumor necrosis,3,4 and enhancing the embolic effect.2
EmboCube® Embolization Gelatin
Merit Medical’s EmboCube Embolization Gelatin brings speed, precision, and consistency to gelatin foam. EmboCube is uniformly cut gelatin foam pre-loaded into a Medallion® Syringe, allowing for faster preparation and accurate delivery. Also available in a simple kit for your convenience.
Torpedo™ Gelatin Foam
Torpedo Gelatin Foam provides you with a preshaped gelatin foam loaded into a cartridge with an optional blunt stylet, removing the need for manual foam shaping, offering fast and easy attachment to the catheter for delivery. Easy to prepare and use, Torpedo Gelatin foam requires only hydration with a 50:50 saline-to-contrast mixture.
Bearing nsPVA® Embolization Particles
Bearing nsPVA Embolization Particles are irregularly shaped, biocompatible, hydrophilic, nonresorbable particles produced from polyvinyl alcohol. These embolization particles are intended to provide vascular occlusion or reduction of blood flow within target vessels upon selective placement through a variety of catheters. Size distribution of Bearing nsPVA is more tightly calibrated than the leading competitor.5
SwiftNINJA® Steerable Microcatheter
The SwiftNINJA is a straight tip catheter that articulates up to 180 degrees in opposing directions to rapidly select the most challenging vascular ostium and provide you with in vivo, multidimensional steering and control.
Merit Pursue™ Microcatheters
Merit Pursue Microcatheters are small distal French-size microcatheters designed for pushability and trackability through small and tortuous vessels. The small outer diameter allows you to get deeper into the vasculature and still deliver the same spherical and non-spherical embolics of larger diameter microcatheters.
Merit Maestro® Microcatheters
Merit Maestro Microcatheters are designed to deploy coils up to 0.018″ and embolics up to and including 900 µm. Its swan neck design helps you seat the catheter in the vessel, reducing the recoiling effect of the embolic agent as it is introduced. Other features include a flexible distal region designed for atraumatic vessel entry and hydrophilic coating for smooth traction through tortuous anatomy.
True Form™ Reshapable Guide Wires
The True Form Reshapable Guide Wire is a 0.014″ guide wire designed with the ability to be shaped multiple times and keep its shape during procedures. The hydrophilic coating and flexible shaft help you navigate tortuous anatomy while the stainless steel core gives you excellent support for devices.
Tenor® Steerable Guidewires
Exceptional pushability and torqueability are combined in the Tenor Steerable Guidewire to facilitate precise navigation in challenging anatomy during your embolic procedures. Market evaluation showed that more than 80% of users rated the Tenor 0.018″ as superior or equivalent to their current wire across all key product attributes.5
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Up to 80% of women develop fibroids by the time they reach age 50.6 Our uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) solutions offer you trusted products that deliver predictable clinical results and long-term symptom control, clinical resources, patient materials, and more through our
Prostatic Artery Embolization
Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) gives patients living with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) a viable nonsurgical option clinically proven to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.7 To help support your PAE practice, we offer virtual and hands-on training, trusted products, clinical resources, and patient materials through our
Explore our patient education programs, Ask4PAE and Ask4UFE, both dedicated to providing information to patients and their families about BPH and uterine fibroids, respectively, and available treatment options. Each program provides a variety of patient awareness tools, such as brochures, videos, flyers.
