DERIVO® Embolisation Device

Advanced flow diversion with unique visibility concept

The flow diversion technique with the use of embolisation devices placed in the parent artery is a new approach to treat intracranial aneurysms – especially fusiform and large ones with a wide neck.

These devices have a high vessel wall coverage and the ability to change haemodynamic forces and vectors in the segment bearing the aneurysm.


DERIVO® Embolisation Device –
new generation of flow diversion:

  • Unique X-Ray visibility
  • 2.5mm to 6.0mm vessel diameter
  • 3D Sizing Simulation
  • True self-expansion
  • Resheathability
  • Improved corrosion resistance and lower thrombogenicity due to BlueXide surface finishing

Long lesions can now be treated by a single DERIVO® instead of using several devices in a telescoping technique.


Embolisation Device

Device length

3.5 – 6.0mm
in 0.5mm steps

Vessel diameter

2.5 – 6.0mm

Device length in vessel

15 – 80mm


compatible with micro­catheters with 0.027" ID



Visible Adaptability

  • Unique X-Ray visibility as a result of radiopaque Nitinol Composite Wires and
    three Platinum-Iridium X-Ray markers on both ends
  • Good vessel wall conformability based on special braiding properties

New composite wire concept for outstanding visibility of the DERIVO® contour
