PROTECT AGAINST DISTAL EMBOLIZATION


Partnering with Boston Scientific can help mitigate the inherent risks of SVG interventions and protect against distal embolization:

 

  Patients undergoing PCI in SVGs may have increased risk of adverse events due to plaque embolization

  Distal embolization during SVG PCI is common, and embolic events cannot be accurately predicted by clinical or angiographic variables1

  Mechanical embolic protection devices are used to capture atheroemboli

  Use of distal embolic protection devices is an ACC/AHA/SCAI standard of care recommendation2

COMPLICATIONS CAN COST YOU


Embolic complications are frequent and costly in SVG interventions‡

 

QUALITY OUTCOMES

  42% reduction in incidence of MI

  Mean cost of an MI is > $24,000 in the first year

 

PATIENT EXPERIENCE

  Reduced hospital stay by 0.4 days

  Mean cost of a hospital day ($1,500)

 

FINANCIAL HEALTH

 Incremental cost-effectiveness ration (ICER) is $3,718 per year of life saved, which is well below the accepted standard of $50,000
