The clinical study will collect data to verify the safety and performance of the Cook Celect Filter in the prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with a temporary or permanent high risk of thromboembolism.

Condition Intervention
Pulmonary Embolism
Venous Thromboembolism
Device: Celect Vena Cava Filter

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Prospective Study of the Cook Celect Filter, Including Permanent and Retrievable Use

Further study details as provided by Cook:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Major Adverse Event [ Time Frame: up to 12 months ]
    Composite Major Adverse Event includes hemorrhage, perforation, pulmonary embolism, procedure-related or device-related death, occlusion, significant migration and filter fracture.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Successful Retrieval [ Time Frame: up to 12 months ]
    Retrieval attempt describes a procedure in which a physician tried to remove a filter from a patient. A decision to remove a filter was made after determining that the patient no longer required the filter. Retrieval attempts were either successful (i.e., the filter was removed) or unsuccessful (i.e., the filter could not be removed and remained in the patient as a permanent device).

  • Mean Time to Retrieval Attempt [ Time Frame: up to 12 months ]

    Mean time to retrieval describes the average time filters were in place in the study group before a retrieval attempt was made.

    A retrieval attempt describes a procedure in which a physician tried to remove a filter from a patient. The mean time to retrieval describes the average time filters were in place before a retrieval attempt was made.
