REVIVE SE Thrombectomy Device
Codman Neuro, part of DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, announced the European launch of the REVIVE SE Thrombectomy Device, a next generation clot removal device offering enhanced navigation through the cerebral vasculature and rapid restoration of blood flow to the brain after an ischemic stroke. The REVIVE SE device is a self-expanding basket made out of nitinol that features a closed-ended soft distal tip to capture clots and large fragments with minimal trauma. It is designed with narrower and taller struts than similar devices on the market to better penetrate and engage more clot and lower the force required to pass the device through a 0.021 micro-catheter. The REVIVE SE device may also be used for the non-surgical removal of thrombi and emboli with aspiration and injected contrast agents.
