Pursuant to our unique process of product development, interventionalists described the "ideal" occlusion plug as possessing the following characteristics:

  1. Extremely precise placement and complete lack of migration once delivered
  2. Immediate and total occlusion while also being very trackable
  3. A "Stent Like" delivery system to improve usability while eliminating the need for ancillary devices
  4. Overall reduction in time and cost of the occlusion procedure

The result of our unique product development process resulted in the HourGlass™ embolization plug. The physics and materials used in this device meet or exceed every one of the design inputs.

HourGlass™ has been extensively tested both on the bench, in animals and also in a 50 patient human study with excellent performance both clinically and economically.


Bringing true innovation to solve the unmet needs of the Interventional Radiologist.
