Co2 Angiography just got a whole lot easier

Angiodroid is a Carbon Dioxide Injector for Peripheral Interventional Angiography below the Diaphragm.

The Technology has been developed over the last 5 years in cooperation with Private and Public Hospitals as well as Italian Universities.
The practise of the CO2 provides significant benefits and a very low rate of complications compared with iodinated contrast.

Angiodroid “The CO2 Injector” offers these benefits:

·         Defines with precision the amount of gas to be injected into the vessel
·         Defines Volumes and Pressures of injection (automation, security and repeatability of the procedure)
·         Guarantees a Constant Injection pressure of the gas during the procedure allowing the repeatability of the procedure and obtaining an excellent quality of imaging
·         Ensures complete removal of the air contained in the catheter. None Air Contamination Risk caused by manual operation

Angiodroid “The CO2 Injector” Main Technical Aspects

·         Digital Volume Doses Setting
·         Digital Pressure Injection Setting
·         Fast Automatic Reload (20 seconds) for repeatable injection.
·         High accuracy of the set pressure injection
·         High accuracy of the set volume doses
·         Dual microcontroller to ensure high performance and high safety
·         Remote controller (Pending) to start the injection
·         Possibility to save each injection settings for different districts
·         Touch screen console
 Angiodroid now comes with remote control injection of Co2 to reduce radiation exposure. 


TIPS: using CO2 for the localization of the portal vein can facilitate this procedure. The lowest viscosity of the gas than the iodinate contrast media permits to visualize more clearly the portal vein.
EVAR:  during this procedure are performed many angiography but patients undergoing this procedure are often elderly with compromised renal function; using CO2 instead of iodine can reduce risk of contrast induced nefropathy risk for patients.
Acute intestinal hemorrhage detection: CO2 can help in this procedure because the gas in the intestine expand in a peculiar way creating caracteristic bubbles that reveal the bleeding.
Detection of Endoleaks following EVAR: the low viscosity of CO2 than iodine (400 times less viscous) allows to much more easily identify the endoleaks with an angiography performed with the gas as contrast media.

Interventions in the peripheral arteries and in in upper and lower limbs: CO2 can be more effective than the iodinate contrast media because in this kind of investigation it permits to have a more accurate visualization of the arteries and vein.
