Concentric Medical Expands Product Offering in Neuro Access
Date:1/29/2009

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentric Medical, Inc., the global leader in devices for clot removal in ischemic stroke patients, today announced the release in the U.S. of two new lengths of the Outreach(TM) Distal Access Catheter for use in neurovascular interventions. The Outreach Distal Access Catheter provides neurointerventionalists additional access and support options during minimally invasive procedures in the brain.

Concentric Medical released its first Outreach Distal Access Catheter in the U.S. and Europe in October 2008. The catheter, which was specifically designed to provide support and access in Merci Retrieval procedures, has been well received by the neurointerventional community. These two new lengths of the Outreach Distal Access Catheter are in direct response to physician feedback that the catheter is a valuable tool for other interventions in the brain.

The Outreach Distal Access Catheter is particularly well suited for navigating tortuous anatomy or in situations requiring additional microcatheter support. In commenting on its versatility, Raul Nogueira, Interventional Neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital, stated, "As one of the first physicians to use the initial Outreach Distal Access Catheter, I am impressed with how rapidly Concentric was able to take early physician feedback and expand the product family. These two new lengths will no doubt help a broader patient population during stroke interventions as well as other treatments such as aneurysms and AVM repair."
