Angiovac is an exciting new technology used for the removal of blood clots within the venous system, right heart, and pulmonary arteries, and is most commonly used to treat thrombosis of the IVC and iliac veins as well as massive pulmonary embolism. It can also be used to remove thrombus or vegetations from around the tip of central venous catheters as well as to remove right atrial tumors. The procedure is performed percutaneously with no open incisions.
