Bridge Occlusion Balloon in Lead Extraction Procedure

2016-03-22 06:23:23 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate the use of an occlusion balloon (Bridge™ Occlusion Balloon, Spectranetics) within the Superior Vena Cava in lead extraction patients.


This study will evaluate the use of an occlusion balloon (Bridge™ Occlusion Balloon, Spectranetics) within the Superior Vena Cava in lead extraction patients. This will be performed in a non-emergent setting to allow for evaluation of how best to integrate this new technology into the investigators clinical practice. The study will focus on the effect of the Bridge balloon on the patient preparation clinical workflow, ease of insertion/positioning/deployment, and the ability to recognize proper inflation and vein sealing under fluoroscopy. Understanding these factors will help build a more robust clinical workflow with the goal of better patient outcomes in the case of an Superior Vena Cava injury. The images and data generated during this study can help in dissemination of the practical use knowledge to fellow lead extractors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.

The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.

A balloon-assisted enteroscopy utilizing a flexible endoscope with one overtube balloon control unit.

Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
