New US patent for Barrel vascular reconstruction device


Reverse Medical Corporation has announced that the United States Patent Office has notified the company that a new patent has issued entitled “Protuberant Aneurysm Bridging Device and Method of Use”. This new patent grants six claims surrounding the use of the company’s Barrel vascular reconstruction device technology platform.

The Reverse Medical Barrel vascular reconstruction device represents a proprietary technology designed specifically for treating complex intracranial bifurcation artery anatomy. The Barrel design is unique, essentially reducing the neck size of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms, enabling traditional coil embolisation, a craft already mastered by the neuro interventionalist, while maintaining patency of all involved vasculature.

Commenting on this new patent, Reverse Medical chief technology officer Brian Strauss says, “This patent solidifies our intellectual property foundation of unique means for treating wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms, and along with our other issued patents and pending applications, provides us with broad protection for our innovative device portfolio for treating a variety of neuro and peripheral vascular conditions.”
