Discover how Philips IVUS benefits your treatment plans in peripheral interventions.

Answers from within. Without question.

Philips IVUS, a catheter-based technology, gives physicians the ability to visualize disease characteristics without question, determine treatment plans without doubt, and provide answers without compromising care.

Philips IVUS remains the only device to offer advanced, plug-and-play visualization of vessels from within.

Without doubt


Philips IVUS helps physicians make informed care decisions.

Informs device selection, stent sizing, vessel morphology and post intervention follow-up care.

Without compromise


With Philips IVUS comes uncompromised care.

In addition to the patient, interventionalists are also exposed to significant radiation, compounded by the number of procedures they perform.

Philips IVUS may reduce the use of venograms, thereby reducing exposure to procedural radiation.

Without question


Philips IVUS reveals unquestionable disease characteristics.

A 360-degree view helps you better understand disease characteristics and surrounding structures such as compression, lesions, webbing, spurs, clot burdens and more.

Stent migration can result in the stent lodging in the heart, resulting in open surgery or potentially death.1 Migration may be prevented by ensuring the stent is of adequate diameter, length and has appropriate landing zones.2
Why IVUS

Why IVUS

  • Unlike arteries, veins are elliptical and are harder to quantify percent stenosed. Vessel size may vary greatly.
  • Factors, such as how hydrated the patient is, changes in real-time.
  • Venography underestimated diameter reduction of the most severe lesion by 11% compared to IVUS.3
Stent sizing

Stent sizing

  • Selecting the correct stent size can prove challenging, especially with the newer dedicated venous stents.
  • Undersizing can lead to migration or early thrombosis.
  • Oversizing can lead to chronic pain, damage of tissue or turbulent flow and thrombosis.4
Assessing landing zones

Assessing landing zones

  • IVUS is invaluable in assessing landing zones for stent placement. A stent should be placed from healthy to healthy tissue.4
  • Venography alone can not not accurately assess the iliac and femoral confluences as well as the sites of arterial crossing.3,5
  • Identifying the wire location within the channel can prevent “caging” the main inflow vessel during post-thrombotic cases.4
