I anyone familiar with a PICC called Zeus by r4vascular that is claiming to reduce catheter occlusions and DVT's?
Here's their website: www.r4vascular.com
The catheter has a biomimetic coating that is intended to reduce the attachment for blood proteins that create the conditioning layer that leads to occlusion over time. This catheter is new, so I am not aware of any clinical studies that have been published with its use. Lynn
