The FDA cleared an expanded indication for MicroVention’s Sofia catheter designed for intracranial access.

The Sofia catheter is designed for precise delivery of multiple neurovascular therapies and is used for distal navigation, allowing it to provide support close to the site of treatment.

The device is now cleared for contact aspiration procedures to treat astute ischemic stroke. It received a CE Mark in the EU for the same indication in 2015.
