New Blood Clot Removal System Successfully Restores Blood Flow
Date:7/25/2013

PARK CITY, Utah, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Nick Cavros, interventional cardiologist with Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) at Lafayette General Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, used a new hand-held mechanical aspiration system to remove blood clots and increase blood flow.

The patented ASPIRE Aspirator connects to any aspiration catheter and aspirates, or sucks out, blood clots in blocked arteries and veins.  ASPIRE systems allow clinicians to instantly start, stop, increase, decrease, or pulse aspiration during a variety of procedures. 

During the procedure, which takes place in a catheterization laboratory, a small catheter is inserted into the patient's leg and is guided to the blocked vessel.  Once a catheter is in the vein or artery, the cardiologist can diagnose the location and extent of the lesion.  Treatment options vary depending on the age, size, and location of the blood clot.  Clinicians may follow blood clot aspiration with stent, bypass, or other intervention. 

"Most people know that blood clots are lethal in the heart and brain.  But, blood clots can be life-threatening in the legs, lung, and other organs too," said Dr. Cavros.  "Our CIS team has experience treating a wide range of blood clots with numerous tools.  We focus on the patient's needs and tailor the right therapy to improve care—fast."

Blood clot aspiration is typically performed with basic syringes or electromechanical pumps.  Basic syringes require two hands to operate, are volume limited, and do not maintain consistent aspiration force.  Electromechanical systems can aspirate more volume with increased force, but are expensive, can be difficult to use, require extensive set-up, and do not give the clinician tactile feedback during aspiration. 

"Speed and accuracy is important to remove blood clots and restore blood flow," continued Dr. Cavros.  "The ASPIRE system improves aspiration speed and performance, and it allows us to use a variety of catheters specific to the patient's needs." 

"We are pleased that our technology was used again to improve patient care," said Shawn Fojtik, CEO of Control Medical Technology.  "Improving aspiration can improve care.  The ASPIRE Aspirator meets this challenge with a simple technology to improve aspiration speed and control."       

CIS is one of the most respected groups of cardiologists, representing nearly every specialty in heart and circulatory medicine.  With a team of nearly 500 dedicated team members, CIS serves communities throughout Louisiana, as well as national and international patients, at its 14 clinics.  CIS consistently positions itself at the forefront of technology by providing the most up-to-date technology coupled with compassionate care.  This mission has guided the institute for nearly 30 years of service to south Louisiana.  For more information about CIS, call 1-800-425-2565 or visit www.cardio.com
