Micrus Endovascular Launches Neuropath Guide Catheter

September 17, 2008 - Micrus Endovascular Corp. yesterday initiated its worldwide launch of Neuropath guide catheter line, designed with a highly flexible and visible tip so neurointerventionalists can gain better vessel access and greater vessel selection in treating patients with complex anatomies.

Micrus develops, manufactures and markets implantable and disposable medical devices for use in the treatment of cerebral vascular diseases. Micrus products are used by interventional neuroradiologists, interventional neurologists and neurosurgeons to treat both cerebral aneurysms responsible for hemorrhagic stroke and intracranial atherosclerosis, which may lead to ischemic stroke.

Hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke are both significant causes of death and disability worldwide. The Micrus product line enables physicians to gain access to the brain in a minimally invasive manner through the vessels of the circulatory system. Micrus’ proprietary, three-dimensional microcoils automatically deploy within the aneurysm, forming a scaffold that conforms to a wide diversity of aneurysm shapes and sizes. Micrus also sells accessory devices and products used in conjunction with its microcoils.
