Retracta® Detachable Embolization Coil from Cook Medical

Fully retractable.
We are pleased to introduce you to the Retracta® Detachable Embolization Coil—a detachable .035 inch diameter coil that is fully retractable and based on platinum Nester® coil technology.
The Retracta coil’s deployment mechanism is robust and easy to use. Much like a light bulb in a socket, the packaged coil arrives secured to the distal end of the wire guide via a screw mechanism. So even when you push the coil completely out of the catheter, it remains attached to the wire guide, allowing you to retract the coil and reposition it as necessary.
When you have achieved the desired placement, use the screw mechanism to detach the coil.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the Cook Medical booth to discuss the Retracta coil and to introduce our full line of embolic therapies products.
