The ACCUNET embolic protection system is designed to provide excellent capture capabilities and easy filter control when doctors perform carotid stenting interventions.
The system is a .014-inch guide wire-based filter system. It utilizes rapid exchange technology so the physician can easily control the filter during catheter manipulations. It is available in 190 cm and 300 cm lengths with the proximal end of the 190 cm device coined to allow for attachment to a “DOC” wire extension.
The device was cleared by the FDA in 2004.
