Posted on October 15,2013 Cocoon

The Cocoon Duct Occluder is used in the transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus.  It is made from Nitinol wires coated with platinum using nano fusion technology.



Main Features

  • Nano Platinum coating provides superior bio-compatible properties compared to bare nitinol.
  • Prevents Nickel leaching into the blood stream.
  • Prevents corrosion of Nitinol wire frame in long term implants.
  • Platinum provides better radioopacity which enables easy positioning of the device in the defect.
