Extraction Catheter Prevents Vessel Wall Contact with Aspiration Lumen

 

August 26, 2008

Vascular Solutions' extraction catheters are simple aspiration catheters that make use of a vacuum syringe to withdraw blood clots (thrombus) from various arteries, including those of the coronary and peripheral vasculature.

The Pronto catheter incorporates a proprietary Silva tip, designed to facilitate passage of the catheters through the blood vessels and to prevent vessel wall contact with the aspiration lumen during aspiration.
