MicroCath
Flow Direct Catheter



OVERVIEW

MicroCATHCatheter is a Neurovascular intervention that uses of minimally-invasive endovascular techniques to treat vascular diseases of the brain. Physicians who perform these procedures receive highly specialized training in interventional neuroradiology and/or endovascular neurosurgery.

We offer advanced solutions for the treatments of the following brain diseases:

Intracerebral AVMs and AV Fistulas

Intracerebral aneurysms

Inntracranial stenosis

Ischemic stroke and intracerebral thrombus

Tumors

MicroCATHCatheter is the Flow dependent microcatheter with a strong resistance to pressure and total DMSO compatibility.

The catheters are the only real flow-dependent catheters, meaning that their progression through the arteries system is facilitated by the blood flow. This characteristic is achieved thanks to an extreme suppleness of the tubes which allows a fast and non-traumatic progression of the catheter inside the blood vessels

Detectable-part

Compatible embolizing agents

  • NBCA
  • ethanol
  • lipiodol
  • microspheres
  • PVA Particles
  • Chemoembolization Agents
  • Contrast media

The use of the MicroCATHdetachable-tip microcatheter for embolization of AVMs and AVFs is associated with high rates of successful catheterization and obliteration and low rates of morbidity and mortality.

FEATURES
