Doctors in Germany Among First to Use New Self-Expanding Clot Removal Device for Ischemic Stroke
Date:5/11/2011

VIVE™ SE," said Dr. Bendszus, who is an investigator for RIVER I (Reperfuse Ischemic Vessels with Endovascular Recanalization), a recently initiated, single-arm study in Germany that will include patient screening with MRI before treatment with REVIVE™ SE.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), ischemic strokes account for about 90 percent of the 15 million strokes that occur worldwide each year. Hemorrhagic strokes occur when an artery in the brain bursts. Europe averages approximately 650,000 stroke deaths each year.

It can be redeployed multiple times based on the severity of the clot. The device features a closed distal end to help prevent portions of the clot from moving further upstream within the vessel. The basket engages the clot for effective removal, is reconstrainable to ease retrieval, and is designed for optimal centering within the vessel lumen during deployment and retrieval.  

"The REVIVE™ SE represents Codman's first product entry into ischemic stroke, due in large part to our recent acquisition of Micrus Endovascular," said Karen Prange, General Manager and Vice President, Codman Neurovascular. "This is the beginning of a long term commitment to bring forward more innovations that advance the treatment of stroke and improve patient care, outcomes and access to treatment."
