On 29 December 2011, MindFrame announced that a CE mark was granted for a new series of MindFrame Capture LP devices. The low profile devices have been expanded to include a 4-mm diameter and shorter length sizes. The Capture LP devices can be deployed through smaller microcatheters to improve navigation through tortuous vessels.
Compatible with any microcatheter 10/14 or greater, MindFrame LP devices provide clinicians with 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.
“This represents another example of MindFrame’s commitment to rapid product development,” said Ken Charhut, president and CEO of MindFrame. “Receiving the CE mark approval for the product portfolio expansion enables physicians to treat a majority of patients presenting with ischaemic stroke by utilising low-profile technology for more efficient navigation and better aspiration. MindFrame is committed to developing leading-edge devices that provide improved procedural and clinical outcomes for clinicians and their patients.”
MindFrame Capture LP is not approved for sale in the United States.
