  • Patent number: 10517622
    Abstract: A system may comprise a clot engagement element having a collapsed delivery configuration and an expanded configuration for engaging with a clot and for dislodging the clot from a first vessel segment. An elongate member may be configured to apply a pull force to the clot engaging element to dislodge the clot from the first vessel segment. A clot removal catheter may include a lumen at its distal end sized to receive the clot and configured to maintain a stable position in a second blood vessel segment proximal of and larger in diameter than the first blood vessel segment. A distal end of the elongate member may be configured to protect a third blood vessel segment between the first and second blood vessel segments from tractive forces transmitted by the elongate member during clot dislodgement from the first vessel segment.

  • Patent number: 10420570
    Abstract: A self-expandable mechanical clot retrieval device is designed variously to dislodge, engage and retract blood clot from extremely small and tortuous vasculature. The retrieval device comprises an elongate member and a plurality of ring elements. The ring elements may comprise a plurality of struts and crowns interconnected by a tether formed at a distal end of the elongate member or may be a separate component attached thereto. At least one tether may connect each ring element to the elongate member to restrain the ring element in a collapsed configuration during delivery of the retrieval device through an intravascular microcatheter. The tether connecting the ring element to the elongate member disengages when the retrieval device is positioned at the occluded site and the microcatheter is retracted to allow the self-expandable ring elements to reach an expanded configuration.
