Research has shown that IVC filters may have long-term complications and the FDA has published multiple safety communications recommending the removal of IVC filters when no longer indicated.¹,² Philips IVC Filter Removal Laser Sheath – CavaClear – is the first and only FDA-cleared solution for advanced IVC filter removal³ and was granted Breakthrough Device Designation (BDD). It is a state-of-the-art laser sheath designed to safely and predictably ablate scar tissue 360 degrees around an embedded IVC filter.⁴ CavaClear provides an effective, minimally invasive solution for embedded IVC filters, no matter the filter dwell time. CavaClear is backed by Philips support to train staff on device usage and mechanisms of action, as well as offer additional support to seamlessly integrate into your workflow.
