Alcyone Wins CE Mark for Alivio Ventricular Catheter and Flusher System

October 31, 2017

Alcyone Lifesciences received a CE Mark for its Alivio Ventricular Catheter and Flusher System for the treatment of Hydrocephalus.

The shunts are implantable devices inserted by neurosurgeons to treat hydrocephalus, a condition in which an excess of cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the ventricles and can increase intracranial pressure in the brain, creating a potentially life-threatening condition.

The system, in conjunction with any CSF shunt, is designed to unblock ventricular catheters.
