MindFrame announced it has received CE mark approval for the MindFrame Capture LP and the MindFrame Flow LP devices. These low profile devices can be deployed through a smaller microcatheter to improve access through tortuous vessel anatomies. These devices are designed to treat patients suffering from ischaemic stroke through microcatheter-based flow restoration and clot extraction, allowing neurointerventionalists to achieve successful procedural and clinical outcomes for patients.
“This unique device technology offers improved ability to access thrombus through tortuous blood vessel anatomies, allowing for rapid perfusion and thrombus retrieval,” said Tommy Andersson, department of Neuroradiology, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. “The MindFrame LP devices allow me to restore blood flow and preserve brain function for my patients, providing the potential of being the standard in ischaemic stroke treatment.”
MindFrame Capture LP and MindFrame Flow LP are compatible with any microcatheter 10/14 or greater. With the MindFrame LP devices, clinicians can expect 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.
These devices are not approved for sale in the United States.
