Merit Medical announces that both its EmboCube (syringe-loaded embolization gelatin foam) and Torpedo (uniform, pre-shaped gelatin foam loaded into a cartridge with optional blunt stylet) devices are now US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-indicated for the embolization of blood vessels to occlude blood flow, which helps control bleeding and haemorrhaging in the peripheral vasculature.

EmboCube is the only gelatin foam that is delivered pre-cut and pre-loaded into a syringe for efficiency and ease of use. Torpedo provides physicians a uniformly pre-shaped gelatin foam loaded into a cartridge with an optional blunt stylet, removing the need for manual foam shaping, providing fast and easy attachment to the catheter for delivery, a Merit press release states. EmboCube and Torpedo are made of porcine gelatin and have no ferrous composition, making it safe for use in patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
