Bead Block® is an embolic device intended for the purpose of embolizing the blood vessels of a variety of hypervascularized tumors and arteriovenous malformations. Bead Block® is a preformed, deformable microsphere consisting of a biocompatible, acrylamido polyvinyl alcohol macromer.
Bead Block® compressible microspheres are used in embolization therapy. This is a minimally invasive (non-surgical) procedure performed by an interventional radiologist. By blocking the blood supply to the target area, the tumor or malformation is starved of nutrients and shrinks in size.
Bead Block® microspheres are produced from a biocompatible polyvinyl alcohol hydrogel. The microspheres are tinted blue for easy visualisation and are supplied in pre-filled color coded syringes for added procedural safety and efficiency.
Bead Block® is precisely calibrated to offer reliable and consistent size distribution and predicable embolization.
Studies show that, unlike other embolics, Bead Block® does not aggregate or fragment, either of which may compromise the embolization endpoint.2
