Concentric Medical Reaches Important Stroke Milestone
Date:1/26/2009

ver 780,000 strokes occur in the U.S. alone each year. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the U.S. Stronger coverage by neurointerventionalists, increased patient awareness and faster development of comprehensive stroke center capabilities are all key components to ensuring these patients have access to high quality stroke care, including the Merci Retrieval System.

A milestone like this is only possible with close collaboration between industry and clinicians. It marks the closing of an initial phase in the development of a new therapy while opening an even more important phase to drive broad global adoption. "We are at the forefront of change in interventional stroke care," said Concentric Medical's President and Chief Executive Officer, Maria Sainz. "Concentric Medical is committed to bringing forward advancements in stroke intervention through ongoing clinical study and product innovation to broaden the reach of this breakthrough technology to stroke patients."
