Concentric Introduces New Neurovascular Retrievers

Concentric Medical’s V series of Merci Retrievers is available in multiple configurations and sizes to match patient anatomy to remove blood clots and help restore blood flow in patients who have suffered ischemic strokes.
The distal end of the latest Retriever is tightly coiled, which resists stretching and assists in dislodging clots. The proximal end of the V series retrievers is more loosely coiled, which facilitates wrapping and holding a dislodged clot. Similar to Concentric’s L family of retrievers, the V series of Merci Retrievers incorporate filaments that provide an additional mechanism for securing blood clots during retrieval from the brain, the company said.
