Gangi-SoftGuard® coaxial biopsy needle
AprioMed introduces Gangi-SoftGuard® coaxial biopsy needle. Gangi-SoftGuard® combines the well-known technique of a coaxial biopsy needle with an all new spring loaded blunt tip stylet providing extra control and safety during soft tissue biopsy. The spring loaded blunt tip stylet:
• Reduces risk of inadvertent perforation of adjacent tissue during coaxial needle advancement
• Provides visual feedback during procedure
• Offers tactile response during procedure
• Enables penetration without exchange of stylets
Gangi-SoftGuard® is available in four gauges (12G, 13G, 15G, 17G) and three lengths (7.1 cm, 12.1 cm, 17.1 cm) to better suite the requirements for your biopsy procedure.
We look forward to meeting you at Booth 79.
At CIRSE 2017, Mentice is showcasing ground-breaking training solutions for Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE) and Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) – with the aim of reducing the learning curve, leading to the faster adoption of these procedures.
Train different techniques and treatment strategies for complex liver embolization in one training solution.
Prostatic Artery Embolization
Experience the world’s first prostate embolization simulation training software – developed in collaboration with Dr. Sapoval and Dr. Bhatia.
Find us in the Radiation Protection Pavilion.
Your trusted coil comes with a new shape
The Concerto™ family of embolization coils is now expanded with a new conformable 3D shape that is designed to create a complex frame for filling target vessels.
Precision and control
Concerto™ 3D coil is equipped with a mechanical detachment system that offers a greater range of motion between pusher and coil. This system provides reliable delivery and detachment and allows the coil to be fully resheathed and easily repositioned.
All Concerto™ 3D coils feature PGLA fibers that studies have shown to reduce flow rates by >30% compared to bare metal equivalents2 and this has shown to improve overall thrombogenic response1.
Visit the Medtronic Learning Centre to learn more about Concerto™ 3D coil and the MVP™ micro vascular plug and experience them hands on with our flow model.

MVP™ Micro Vascular Plug System
A unique design
The MVP™ micro vascular plug system is designed to occlude vessels in the peripheral vasculature quickly and predictably. It is a self-expanding vessel occlusion device comprised of a nitinol frame, secured at both ends with platinum marker bands and partially covered with a PTFE membrane. All MVP™ plug devices are fully re-sheathable to facilitate accurate placement.
Now available in four sizes
MVP™ plug now comes in four sizes, the latest addition being the MVP™ 9 plug which allows to occlude vessels of up to 9 mm in diameter. On the other end of the spectrum, the smaller versions of MVP™ plug can be delivered by a microcatheter, which enables super selective treatment of distal vessels down to only 1.5 mm in diameter. Visit the Medtronic Learning Centre to learn more about the MVP™ plug and our new Concerto™ 3D coil, and experience them hands on with our flow model.
The Next Evolution for TIPS
GORE® VIATORR® TIPS Endoprosthesis with Controlled Expansion
Control DIAMETER, Target PRESSURE
• Lasting Diameter Control
- Control the diameter to reach a targeted portal pressure gradient.
- Size and set the diameter to stay.1
• Single Device
- Select from a range of diameters2 during implantation.
- Count on advanced performance that combines a legacy of proven patency3 with diameter control.
1. Based on benchtop data on file. Less than 0.25 mm increase in diameter (diameter expansion) demonstrated by a simulated 10 year period at physiologic portal pressures.
2. Labeled diameter range is between 8–10 mm.
3. Based on GORE® VIATORR® TIPS Endoprosthesis: Bureau C, Pagan JCG, Layrargues GP, et al.
