First-in-human procedure performed with the MindFrame LP device


The first patient suffering from ischaemic stroke was successfully treated with the MindFrame Capture LP low profile device (MindFrame) at Katherinen Hospital in Stuttgart, Germany. Recently CE marked, the MindFrame LP devices are designed to treat patients suffering from ischaemic stroke through microcatheter-based flow restoration and clot extraction.

“I am extremely pleased with the performance of the MindFrame LP device,” said Hans Henkes, director of the Clinic for Radiology and Neuroradiology, Essen, Germany. “The low profile device allowed me to access tortuous anatomies to remove the thrombus within 20 minutes, from time of deployment to clot aspiration. Restoring blood flow rapidly and removing the clot is vital to preventing irreversible brain damage.”

MindFrame Capture LP and MindFrame Flow LP are compatible with any microcatheter 10/14 or greater. With the MindFrame LP devices, clinicians can expect the additional benefit of increased thrombus aspiration when needed, both locally and proximally, as a result of the reduced microcatheter size. The devices offer improved tensile strength and kink resistance for device durability, as well as enhanced trackability for precise placement and control.

MindFrame Capture LP and MindFrame Flow LP devices are not approved for sale in the United States.
