ArtVentive Medical Group Inc., in cooperation with Sumitomo Bakelite Co., is working on entering the Japanese market with the EOS Plug.
In a Regulatory Animal Study conducted in a specialized laboratory in Kobe, Japan, the medical team successfully implanted multiple EOS Plugs.
In competitive comparison tests, the EOS Plug proved to be superior in all embolization cases, with immediate and total occlusion of target vessels. All cases were performed by first-time users of the plug.
Leon Rudakov, President & CTO of ArtVentive trained the physicians prior to the Study and assisted in the procedures.
This event is an important step in the process of marketing the EOS Plug in Japan.
