Avenir® mechanical detachable coil system is designed with three outstanding advantages: complex framing、ultra-soft finishing、instant detachment. With a complete product series including stable framing coils, ultra-volume filling coils and ultra-soft finishing coils, Avenir® enables the physicians to treat endovascular embolization of intracranial aneurysms and other neurovascular malformations (such as arteriovenous malformations and arteriovenous fistulas), as well as arterial and venous embolization of peripheral blood vessels. The reduced first loop diameter of coils minimizes the coil herniation during aneurysm introduction. The exceptional framing effect provides excellent wall apposition and implant distribution to facilitate dense packing. In addition, ultra-soft finishing coils and ultra-fine primary wire enhance softness and conformability, allowing for optimal space seeking capability for the deployed coils to realize higher packing density.
