TriGuard Cerebral Protection Device
Covering All Aortic Arch TakeoffsKeystone Heart's TriGuard™ is the only cerebral protection device designed to provide full coverage to all brain territories, to minimize the risk of cerebral damage during TAVR and other cardiovascular procedures. The CE marked TriGuard™ device is shaped to accommodate anatomic variations of the aortic arch.
Formed to withstand potential interface with the TAVR delivery system and other procedure related accessories, it uses a Nitinol® frame and mesh — flexible and atraumatic, yet robust and sturdy.
The TriGuard Cerebral Protection Device is placed via one of two femoral artery access ports typically used in TAVR, thereby eliminating the need for a third puncture site. It deploys rapidly and self-positions through a small 9F catheter, and it provides stable, atraumatic protection, with simple retrieval.
