A little volume can make a big difference

Due to the irregular shape of PVA flakes, Contour PVA Embolization Particles are designed to occlude vessels with less material than uniform microspheres.

In a controlled, single-center study of 100 patients randomized to either Embosphere™ Microspheres or Contour PVA Embolization Particles, the authors concluded that no significant differences could be found in: frequency of incompletely infarcted leiomyomas, degree of improvement in symptom score, patient satisfaction, or quality of life.1
