Acandis’ Stent Retriever Device Receives CE Mark

June 5, 2019

Acandis has earned the CE Mark for its new stent retriever, the Aperio hybrid thrombectomy device, which is compatible with vessel diameters from 1.5 mm to 5.5 mm.

The retriever is used to restore arterial flow in patients diagnosed with ischemic stroke due to large intracranial vascular occlusion. It can be delivered through common 0.021” microcatheters.

Acandis said the retriever’s design, which features small closed cells and large open cells, provides good vessel wall alignment, improved device expansion and efficient clot retention.
