hepatic shun toccluder

Controlled, gradual, and complete venous occlusion using a percutaneously controlled the Hepatic Shunt Occluder System

The Hepatic Shunt Occluder System is designed for dogs and cats, to produce gradual, and complete occlusion of CPS, after a single surgical procedure. The occlusion can be reversed if postoperative portal hypertension occurs.HSO

The HSO-System consist of an inflatable silicone cuff that is is placed around a vessel and the ring closed by placing suture material through holes molded at each end of the cuff. Inflation of the occluder is controlled percutaneously through injections of fluid into a subcutaneous injection port that is attached via a length of actuating tubing. Occlusion is not mediated by inflammation, but by physical compression of the vessel which may be incrementally controlled percutaneously over time by a biocompatible solution of sufficient density.

While surgical occlusion is an accepted treatment for congenital portosystemic shunts in dogs, acute occlusion of portosystemic shunts is frequently associated with life threatening portal hypertension. The Hepatic Shunt Occluder is a safe and effective alternative to produce gradual and complete occlusion of portosystemic shunts in dogs.
