Nashville, TN, May 22, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Vesalio announces it has obtained its second CE mark approval spanning multiple new NeVa™ neurothrombectomy product designs and technology. The new generation NeVa devices expand on the Drop Zone™ and Smart Marker™ technologies while also introducing first-to-market features such as a distal filter. A controlled launch of the newly approved products will begin in June in Europe with expected full commercial release in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Vesalio also reports a publication entitled, “Mechanical thrombectomy with a novel stent retriever with multifunctional zones: Initial clinical experience with the NeVa™ thrombectomy device,” was recently published in the May 2019 issue of Journal of Neuroradiology. NeVa was utilized as a first line thrombectomy device by 4 stroke centers in Switzerland and Spain. NeVa First Pass recanalization results were 63% TICI 2b/3. Final revascularization scores were 93% TICI 2b/3 with 1.7 average passes and 70% clot incorporation in the NeVa basket.
“We are excited to be granted our second CE Mark approval. Our new technology appears very promising based on early feedback from several physician KOLs. The approval combined with positive clinical results recently published from our first generation NeVa devices has led to an increased market interest in NeVa. We are encouraged by our growth as we are nearing our first anniversary of commercialization. The expansion of the NeVa platform should provide an excellent opportunity for Vesalio to gain additional market share,” commented Steve Rybka, CEO.
