MicroPort introduces Tubridge aneurysm device


The Tubridge Vascular Reconstruction Device from MicroPort NeuroTech recently drew wide attention in World Live Neurovascular Conference in Chicago, USA. In a micro-surgery procedure to treat cerebral aneurysm live broadcasted in the congress, Tubridge was precisely inserted into the brain and successfully helped control blood flow into the aneurysm. The whole procedure lasted for 30 minutes.

“In our clinical tests, we have shown that the cure rate for larger aneurysms is higher than 90%. It produces much better results than the traditional treatment,” said Jianmin Liu from Shanghai Changhai Hospital, who performed the Tubridge procedure.

According to MicroPort, Tubridge, which took eight years for Shanghai Changhai Hospital and MicroPort NeuroTech to jointly develop, marks a breakthrough in the treatment of cerebral aneurysm, as it is expected to reduce recurrence rates from 90% to lower than 5%.

The device can successfully reconstruct cerebrovascular and also features excellent delivery ability, low collateral impact and high vessel patency rate.
