Embolic Protection

The word “embolic” comes from the word “embolus,” which refers to an abnormal particle flowing with the blood.

During interventional cardiology procedures, plaque fragments can become loose, travel through the bloodstream, and increase the risk for injury or stroke.

Embolic protection devices, often called “filters,” can be used to trap these particles.
