Medrad Interventional launches mechanical thrombectomy set


To enable rapid haemodynamic stabilisation during a critical pulmonary embolism, Medrad Interventional has introduced the AngioJet PE Thrombectomy set. 

Used with the AngioJet Ultra system, the PE Thrombectomy set provides an endovascular treatment option that has received CE mark for removal of thrombus from main and lobar pulmonary arteries larger than 6mm.

The 6French catheter is advanced over a 0.035 wire and the 120 centimetre working length allows it to reach the site of the embolism to facilitate debulking of the thrombus. The AngioJet PE mechanical thrombectomy device can be deployed quickly and does not require the use of lytic.

The AngioJet PE Thrombectomy Set is not available in the USA.
