FDA Approves Stryker’s Flow Diverter for Treating Brain Aneurysms
Devices Submissions and Approvals
Stryker received FDA approval for its Surpass Streamline flow diverter, used in treating certain types of brain aneurysm.
The Kalamazoo, Michigan based company’s device treats unruptured large and giant wide-neck aneurysms. The device is placed in the patient’s artery to divert blood flow.
The unruptured aneurysms are harder to treat because of their location and the surrounding anatomy.
