From Which Medical Device

This is a newer design that is based on the Günther Tulip filter and designed to be more easily retrievable. It is made of Conichrome® which is a cobalt- chromium-nickel-molybdenum-iron alloy. It has a single-cone design and incorporates secondary struts, designed to centre the filter at deployment and throughout its duration of use.  It may be used in cavas up to 30mm in diameter and requires a 7F (inner diameter) sheath for insertion via the jugular route.
