The University awarded a contract for endovascular coiling supplies.
Microsurgical detachable platinum wires, surgical clips, balloon guide catheters, and intravascular catheters.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Endovascular coiling, or endovascular embolization, is an endovascular treatment for intracranial aneurysms and bleeding throughout the body. The procedure reduces blood circulation to the aneurysm through the use of microsurgical detachable platinum wires, with the clinician inserting one or more into the aneurysm until it is determined that blood flow is no longer occurring within the space. It is one of two main treatments for cerebral aneurysms, the other being surgical clipping. Clipping is an alternative to stenting for bleeding. Balloon Guide Catheters - Balloon Guide Catheter offers proximal flow control and a stable platform to facilitate the insertion and guidance of an intravascular catheter.
