The LOBO occluder is the first and only peripheral embolization device featuring proprietary HDBRAID™ technology – an innovative, unique braiding method developed specifically for making devices to occlude vessels. With this method, braided devices can be made with wires less than 20 microns in diameter – about ¼ the thickness of a human hair.
Most vascular occluders rely on either a braided structure – one with relatively large wires and pores – or a polymer cover to disrupt flow. These approaches can lead to inconsistent occlusion or migration.
LOBO addresses these challenges by integrating HDBRAID technology and a patented design. The result is a device with a best-in-class pore structure that delivers rapid and consistent occlusion of a wide range of arteries.
