Novel aspiration catheter design for acute stroke thrombectomy
Long TD, Kallmes DF, Hanel R, Shigematsu T, Halaszyn AM, Wolter J, Berenstein A. Novel aspiration catheter design for acute stroke thrombectomy. J Neurointerv Surg. 2019 Feb;11(2):190-195.
“The Q design demonstrates a substantial increase in aspirated flow rate and suction force due to an increased effective diameter than standard tubular catheter designs tested. The prominent increase in the aspiration parameters measured in vitro supports the potential for improved clinical results during stroke thrombectomy procedures.”
