Clot Removal Device
Codman Neuro, part of DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, has obtained CE marking for REVIVE SE, a next-generation self-expanding clot removal device for use in treating acute ischemic stroke, the company announced. 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. The new strut design also lowers the force required to track the device through a 0.021 micro-catheter.
