Registry Data Shows 90% Of Patients Independent, Free Of Significant Disabilities After Treatment With Codman System For Wide-necked Aneurysms
Date:9/18/2012

RAYNHAM, Mass., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- New registry data shows 81 percent of patients had 90 percent or higher aneurysm occlusion after 21 months and only 8.3 percent required retreatment after stent-assisted coil embolization with the CODMAN ENTERPRISE® Vascular Reconstruction Device (VRD) and Delivery System.* The registry data was published in the August edition of Neurosurgery, the official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), Codman Neurovascular, the manufacturer of the system, announced today.

The registry also found that 90 percent of patients had modified Rankin Scale (mRS) scores of two or less at last follow up, meaning the vast majority were independent and had no significant disabilities almost two years after treatment with the device. The mRS score is a measure of the degree of disability or dependence after stroke. The lower the score, the less disability or dependence. The disease/treatment related mortality rate was zero point five percent (0.5%), and the all-cause mortality rate was 1.5 percent.

The 229-patient retrospective registry included data from nine high-volume neurointerventional centers in the United States and Puerto Rico. Thirty-two of the patients had ruptured aneurysms. On average, patients were 57 years old at the time of treatment and had a 9.2 millimeter aneurysm.

"These data suggest that physicians are continuing to improve their ability to treat wide-necked cerebral aneurysms. There were less patients requiring retreatment than have been previously seen in other studies and higher rates of progressive occlusion over time," said J. Mocco, MD, Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery, Radiology and Radiological Sciences, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and a co-author of the paper in Neurosurgery.

 "This registry data provides clinicians with important information about what can be a difficult to treat condition," said P. L
