  • Patent number: 10617435
    Abstract: A clot removal device for removing clot from a body vessel comprises an expandable structure and an elongate member. The expandable structure has a constrained delivery configuration, an expanded clot engaging deployed configuration, and an at least partially constrained clot pinching configuration. At least a portion of the expandable structure is configured to engage clot in the expanded deployed configuration and to pinch clot on movement from the deployed configuration to the clot capture configuration. The expandable structure may comprise a main body portion and a clot pinching structure and a diameter of the clot pinching structure is less than a diameter of the main body portion. The clot pinching structure may be substantially tubular and of spiral form.

  • Patent number: 10441301
    Abstract: A rapid exchange (RX) catheter may provide a proximal seal against a guide catheter inner lumen so that aspiration may be applied through a guide catheter. The catheter may include an exit port that defines a transfer port for aspiration and may enable minimal frictional engagement with the guide catheter proximal of the exit port. Aspiration can be applied to the lumen of the guide catheter and may be directed to and effective at the tip of the RX aspiration catheter. A tip of the RX catheter may facilitate aspiration and retrieval of the clot by expanding under load and can also partially or fully occlude the vessel.

  • Patent number: 10363054
    Abstract: A clot retrieval device for removal of occlusive clot from a blood vessel comprises a clot engaging element 700 having a constrained delivery configuration and an expanded deployed configuration. In the expanded configuration peripheral portions are laterally spaced-apart and the clot engaging section 700 extends between the peripheral portions. The device 700 may have two superimposed wave patterns provided by a large amplitude curve 723 and shorter pitch sinusoidal patterns 721, 722. A wave shape varies the contact pressure between a clot and the device along the length of the device, reducing the compression of the clot by the device at some locations. The device can elongate when placed under tension which aids elongation of the clot during dislodgement.
