Self-Expanding Clot Removal for Ischemic Stroke

Features Newly Navigation

PARIS, FRANCE– JUNE 13, 2013 – *, part of DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, has obtained CE marking for SE, a next-generation self-expanding clot removal device for use in treating acute ischemic stroke, the company announced today at the Live Interventional Neuroradiology & Neurosurgery Course (LINNC) in Paris.

The REVIVE SE device is a self-expanding nitinol basket that is designed to ease navigation through small and tortuous blood vessels and arteries in the cerebral vasculature, and enable rapid restoration of blood flow to the brain during an acute ischemic stroke.

The device features a closed-ended soft distal tip to capture clots and large fragments with minimal trauma, and a narrow and tall strut design to better penetrate and engage more clot.1 The new strut design also lowers the force required to track the device through a 0.021 micro-catheter.2

”Ease of navigation is extremely important during a procedure like in terms of safety and time savings,” said Martin Bendszus, MD, Department of Neuroradiology, University of Heidelberg in Germany.** ”The new device offers good navigation, and based on procedures with its predecessor device, provides consistently good recanalization rates and outcomes.”3

CE marking for the first generation REVIVE SE device was obtained in February 2011. In addition to clot removal, clinicians can use the REVIVE SE devices for the non-surgical removal of emboli and thrombi, with aspiration and with the injection or infusion of contrast media and other fluids. The devices are not currently approved for distribution in the United States.

“We are pleased to enhance our technology platform for ischemic stroke in a way that improves the overall clinical experience,” said P. Laxmin Laxminarain, Worldwide President of Codman Neuro. ”…Read more
