Functional description

The Reperfusion Catheter is introduced through a guide catheter or long femoral sheath and into the

This device is a variable stiffness catheter with a proximal shaft of stainless steel wire and a distal shaft

coiled with Nitinol wire. It is used with an Aspiration Pump and Separator to aspirate and assist with

thrombus removal from an occluded vessel.

Intended purpose

of patients with acute ischemic stroke secondary to intracranial large vessel occlusive disease (within the

internal carotid, middle cerebral ± M1 and M2 segments, basilar, and vertebral arteries) within 8 hours of

symptom onset.
