    The Trellis Device works best with larger veins and large thrombus burden. The device uses less thrombolytic and reduces treatment time.

  • Celect IVC filter
    Celect IVC filter
    The Celect IVC Filter works great for short-term placement with a 2-4 week removal time. Although fairly easy to deploy and retrieve, it can tilt within the IVC after filter deployment.
