Portal Vein Access Series

Unparalleled Steerability Scorpion® and Scorpion®X offer unique ability to navigate tortuous liver anatomy with 360-degree range of motion. Directional handles allow precise directional control of the stiffening cannula and needle/stylet to enter the portal vein and change direction when advancing through the parenchyma. Independently steer the curved needle/stylet and the curved stiffening cannula to expertly maneuver through the vasculature and parenchyma and to change trajectory if necessary.

Key Product Attributes
Greater Procedure Visibility

Scorpion® and Scorpion®X are designed to significantly improve visibility of the components when using fluoroscopy and ultrasound imaging modalities.

  • Alignment marker to help identify when the needle/stylet is flush with the end of PEEK needle/stylet catheter and the stiffening cannula (if applicable).
  • Echogenic tips enable visibility of the needle or stylet on various imaging modalities for easy detection while piercing through liver to portal vein.
  • Radiopaque band on the stiffening cannula provide amplified visibility under fluoroscopy to assist with locating and orienting each component.
Improved Durability

The Scorpion® Series includes durable components helpful when piercing through the parenchyma and advancing through to portal vein.

  • Needle/stylet catheters are constructed of PEEK material instead of traditional PTFE to reduce the risk of fishmouthing and component buckling when advancing through cirrhotic parenchyma.
Versatile Options

Scorpion® is available in stylet and needle offerings to meet physician preference.

  • Scorpion® is available as a .040” curved nitinol stylet
  • Scorpion®X is available as a 17Ga curved nitinol needle
