Detailed Study Protocol Parameters
Study Objectives On label, single arm, observational, multi- center, consecutively enrolling, post-market
surveillance study.
Study Population Patients in need of central venous access who have upper body venous occlusions or other conditions that preclude central venous access by conventional methods, and who meet the requirements described in the
device labeling.
Inclusion Criteria
1. Subjects have been referred for placement of central venous access, i.e. placement of catheter, nutritional line, etc.
2. Subjects with upper body venous
occlusions or other conditions thatpreclude central venous access by conventional methods
3. Subjects are willing and able to give written informed consent
Exclusion Criteria:

• Subjects will be contraindicated if one of the following are found
o Occlusion of the right femoral vein;
o Occlusion of the iliac vein;
o Occlusion of the inferior vena cava.

• Subject with acute thrombosis within any vessel (Superior Vena Cava (SVC), jugular, inferior vena cava (IVC), brachiocephalic and subclavian) planned to be crossed by Surfacer System.
• Subjects with tortuous anatomy which precludes a straight line from femoral venous entry to subclavian exit.

Sample Size A minimum of 30 patients will be enrolled in the study, all cases will be performed at 10-12 sites.

Investigators will invite patients who will be treated with the device in accordance with the
approved labeling and who met enrollment criteria to join the study. All patients who sign a consent form will be assigned a PMS identification number. The identification number will be formatted using site identification number
– sequential site recruited patient number (i.e. 05-04). Any patient meeting the PMS inclusion criteria, for whom this device is indicated, can be recruited.

Key Study Endpoints The study physician or his designee at each clinical site will perform primary data collection. Only the study physician or other pre-designated study personnel will be authorized to enter data (from patient’s medical records, i.e., the source documents) via internet-based e- CRFs.

All study data will be collected on standardized electronic Case Report Forms (eCRFs).
Electronic CRFs must be signed electronically by the PI listed in the Clinical Trial Agreement and Delegation of Authority Log. If for any reason an eCRF is unavailable and/or inaccessible, a paper CRF will be provided by the trial Sponsor to be completed, signed by the Principal Investigator or designee and submitted to BVT.

Only anonymous data will be collected after the patient has consented that personal data can be used.
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up Patients will be followed for 24 hours. Data will be collected at the following timepoints

Baseline, procedure, discharge and 24 hours post procedure. Post procedural complication assessments are expected to occur within 24 hours.
