Dr. Diego Caicedo’s Presentation at CCEV 2024: IMPEDE, an Innovative Solution for Pelvic Venous Embolization

During the third edition of the Venous Summit, organized and directed by the Chapter of Endovascular Surgery (CCEV) in Málaga, Dr. Diego Caicedo presented an innovative option for pelvic venous embolization: the Impede Plug made of biocompatible smart polymer. This novel technology promises to revolutionize the approach to this medical condition, offering multiple benefits for both patients and healthcare professionals.

Dr. Caicedo highlighted that one of the main advantages of the Impede Plug is its lower metal content, which significantly reduces the risks associated with the intervention. Additionally, this smart polymer offers better adaptability to the individual characteristics of each patient, ensuring greater efficacy and safety in the treatment. Another advantage mentioned by Dr. Caicedo is the reduction in the use of coils, which not only optimizes the clinical procedure but also represents significant cost savings.

Dr. Caicedo’s presentation at the Venous Summit underscores the ongoing commitment of the medical and scientific community to seek innovative and effective solutions to improve patients’ quality of life. The success of this third edition of the Venous Summit reflects the growing interest and progress in the field of endovascular surgery, establishing Málaga as a key reference point for the development and discussion of new medical technologies.
