Nit-Occlud® ASD-R is knitted from a single nitinol wire without soldering. It consists of two discs, a distal or left one and a proximal or right one. The unique single-layer distal disc reduces the metal used in the left-atrium (LA) by around 50%, thus providing best patients benefit by reducing the thrombo-embolic risk.
Unique single-wire knit Nit-Occlud® ASD-R is knitted from a single Nitinol wire, making protruding
fixation-clamps obsolete and results in a very low profile.
Safe and simple device release The occluder is pre-mounted, retrievable, easy to position and enables a soft and tension free release.
Patented design The single-layer left atrial disc reduces the amount of metal used in the LA by around 50% and by this decreasing the thrombo-embolic risk.
Pre-attached and ready to use Pre-attached to the delivery cable and ready to use. Can be easily connected to pfm medical Nit-Occlud Implantation Sheaths via a Luer connection.
Adaptive flexible design Optimal compromise between flexibility and strength. The rim of the LA disc is reinforced to facilitate implantation and to avoid pull through.
Accelerated endothelialisation The polyester membrane facing the LA promotes accelerated endothelialisation.
