Gel Embolic Material (GEM™)
Vascular Embolization Device
GEM Vascular Embolization Device is a 510(k) cleared device with aqueous gel technology, the first of its kind to have a specific on-label indication for peripheral use in the US. The GEM Device is indicated for use in the embolization of hypervascular tumors and blood vessels to occlude blood flow for controlling bleeding/hemorrhaging in the peripheral vasculature.
- Gel is compatible with a variety of microcatheters, is delivered ready-to-use, and requires minimal preparation
- When force is applied, the aqueous gel flows readily through catheters and syringes, enabling accurate proximal placement in the target tissue as well as catheter reuse
- When force is removed, the gel becomes a soft solid, conforming to the target vessel for delivering embolization
- Packaged in a 1 mL syringe with a standard luer-lock connection for single use
