Thrombectomy System Features Faster Setup


February 7, 2007

The new AngioJet Ultra Thrombectomy System is a next-generation, completely re-engineered version of Possis' AngioJet Rheolytic Thrombectomy System. AngioJet is marketed for blood clot removal (thrombectomy) from arterial and venous blood vessels. The new Ultra System features a faster setup process, the flexibility to use a broad range of catheters, a sleeker design, lighter weight and handling improvements that make it easier to maneuver than the previous AngioJet drive unit.

According to the company, Ultra features an advanced control system with easier, more intuitive commands. Ultra also allows the physician to switch to Possis' patented Power Pulse delivery when necessary, simultaneously delivering clot-dissolving drugs while removing blockages from the affected arteries and veins.
