TRUFILL® n-BCA Liquid Embolic System

The TRUFILL® n-BCA Liquid Embolic System is used under fluoroscopic guidance to obstruct or reduce blood flow to cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) via super-selective catheter delivery when pre-surgical devascularization is desired.

The TRUFILL n-BCA System offers: 

  • Low Procedure Time
  • Low Fluoroscopy Time
  • Fewer Adverse ClinicalComplications1 
  • Effective Penetration of AVM

Features & Benefits

  • TRUFILL FB

    Customized Radiopacity for Visualization

    The TRUFILL® n-BCA Liquid Embolic System may provide a potential advantage for use due to the variability and range of concentrations after mixing with radiopaque Ethiodized Oil and Tantalum Powder.

  • TRUFILL F&B 2

    Effective Penetration of AVM

    The TRUFILL n-BCA Liquid Embolic System Reduces the Size of the AVM1

*TRUFILL Tantalum Powder may also be added to ethiodized oil to augment radiopacity. Tantalum powder should not be used alone with n-BCA. At higher n-BCA concentrations (>50%), addition of up to 0.5g tantalum powder is advised.


WARNING: A 0:1 TRUFILL Ethiodized Oil to TRUFILL n-BCA ratio should never be used. Recommended mixtures based on the N-Butyl Cyanoacrylate Embolization of Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations Study1
