Long Term Follow Up Data On WEB Aneurysm Embolization System Demonstrate High Rate Of Stable Occlusion In Difficult To Treat Aneurysms
Date:11/14/2013

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., and BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sequent Medical, Inc. announced today the presentation of long-term results from a retrospective study of the WEB™ Aneurysm Embolization System at the World Federation of Interventional Neuroradiology (WFITN) Congress.

The study examined mid- and long-term aneurysm occlusion rates in 45 patients treated with the WEB across 12 European centers.  In this group of patients with complex wide neck bifurcation aneurysms, adequate occlusion was obtained in 81.1% of cases in the mid-term (median six months) and 89.7% of cases in the long-term (median 13 months).  Good clinical outcome (mRS<2) was observed in 93.3% of patients at the last follow-up.  The treatment was quite stable over time, with the occlusion status of 92.9% of cases remaining stable or improving between the mid- and long-term follow up.

"We are pleased to find significant and stable aneurysm occlusion rates with the WEB even in these difficult to treat aneurysms.  This excellent long-term clinical outcome compares favorably with outcomes of other neurovascular techniques, particularly coiling.  These results are even more impressive when considering this patient series comprises cases completed during the early learning curve with the WEB," said Prof Laurent Pierot, MD PhD, Head of the Department of Radiology, Maison Blanche Hospital, Reims, France, who presented the data at the WFITN meeting.  "These results indicate that flow disruption with the WEB will play an increasing role in the management of intracranial aneurysms, especially considering that ruptured aneurysms can also be treated with this technique."

These encouraging results add to a growing body of clinical evidence for the WEB, including six peer-reviewed publications.  Building on this foun
