First-in-man use of the Acandis Acclino 1.9F Stent System


Acandis has announced that the first procedures using the Acclino 1.9F Stent System have been recently performed by René Chapot, head of Neuroradiology Department, Alfried Krupp Hospital, Essen, Germany. 

The Acclino 1.9F Stent System is designed for use in the interventional neurovascular field as an adjunctive product in treating intracranial aneurysms with coils. It is offered as a complete set for use together with the Acandis1.9F microcatheter.

“I appreciate how easily the new 1.9F microcatheter tracked through tortuous anatomy”, said Chapot. “This system makes it very straightforward to position the stent accurately as there is very low friction during delivery and minimal stent foreshortening. Downsizing of the delivery systems for intracranial self-expanding stents is a key point to increase safety of endovascular procedures. This has been brigthly achieved with the Acclino Stent that can be used with the smallest available microcatheters for coil delivery.”

With sizes compatible for vessel diameters of 2 – 4 mm, the laser cut nitinol stent is suitable for all of the cerebral main vessels and those even more distal and rather difficult to reach, where a low profile delivery system is essential. 

According to a company release, the Acclino1.9F Stent System is recapturable and repositionable up to 90% of its deployed length, therefore providing a safe delivery of the stent with great accuracy.
