Abstract

To discuss and evaluate the technical success and efficacy of the ArtVentive endoluminal occlusion system (EOS; ArtVentive, Carlsbad, California) device for splenic embolization.

A retrospective review was undertaken for all patients in whom the EOS device was deployed for the purpose of splenic embolization. Data was collected by a search of splenic artery embolization procedures in the hospital computer database. Data was reviewed for all patients in whom an EOS plug was deployed. Patient demographics, technical aspects of the procedure and follow up at one month were reviewed. We review the technical success and efficacy of this occlusion device.

Six patients underwent splenic embolization with the EOS plug. There were 5 male and 1 female patients, age range was 24-88 years. Five 8mm and one 5mm EOS plugs were deployed for the occlusion of the splenic artery. The technical success rate was 100% occurring in all 6 splenic arteries. One patient underwent a second angiogram and subsequent splenectomy for persistent splenic haemorrhage. One patient had a subsequent splenectomy for bacteraemia with the spleen as the suspected source.

This early data supports the efficacy of the EOS plug for the embolization of the proximal splenic artery.
