  • Publication number: 20180344338
    Abstract: A device for removing a clot from a blood vessel. The device can have a collapsed delivery configuration and an expanded deployed configuration. The device can have a shaft. An outer expandable body can be included that is radially expandable from a first radially expanded state to a second radially expanded state in the deployed configuration. An inner body can be included, wherein the outer expandable body and the inner body are fixedly coupled to a distal region of the shaft, the outer expandable body radially surrounding at least a portion of the inner body in the second radially expanded state. A capture net can be coupled to a distal portion of the inner body and including a proximal mouth.

  • Patent number: 10080575
    Abstract: A clot retrieval system comprises a clot retrieval device, a catheter 51, and a tubular shield element 61. The clot retrieval device comprises an elongate member 53 having a proximal end and a distal end, and a clot engaging element 54 at the distal end of the elongate member 53 the clot engaging element 54 having a collapsed delivery configuration and an expanded deployed configuration. The catheter is adapted for placement at a location at which a distal end of the catheter is proximal of the clot engaging element and the tubular shield element 61 extends over the elongate member 53 and is adapted for location between the distal end of the catheter and the proximal end of the clot engaging element 54. The tubular shield element 61 is movable relative to the elongate member 54 when the clot engaging element is in the expanded configuration in that the force that is applied on retraction of the elongate member is spread over the outer surface of the tubular shield element.

  • Patent number: 10034680
    Abstract: A clot retrieval device (9501) for removing clot from a blood vessel comprises an inner elongate body (9503) and an outer elongate body (9504) at least partially overlying the inner elongate body (9503). The device also comprises an elongate member or shaft (9502) having a proximal end which extends exterior of a patient so that a user can retrieve the stent-basket device and captured clot by retracting the shaft (9502). The outer elongate body (9504) and the inner elongate body (9503) are connected to the distal end of the shaft (9502) and are expandable relative to the shaft (9502) from a collapsed delivery configuration to an expanded deployed configuration. The outer elongate body (9504) is expandable relative to the inner elongate body (9503) to a radial extent which is greater than the radial extent of the inner body (9503) in the deployed configuration.

  • Publication number: 20170215903
    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.

  • Publication number: 20170105743
    Abstract: A catheter has an expansile tip that can be delivered in a constricted form. The increased tip diameter facilitates the aspiration and removal of large clot volumes by increasing the area of the catheter tip that applies aspiration to the clot. The tip comprises a support frame which can be cut from a metal or polymer tube, covered with a thin polymer sleeve 909 containing highly elastic properties. This construction provides good pushability and high compressive resistance. The cut pattern can contain axial connections of the support frame and ring members, which will provide a large level of axial support, lateral flexibility and hoop strength to withstand aspiration. The tip of the device can contain a section proximal of the highly flexible area that can expand to except clot. This potential to increase body diameter facilitates the retrieval of large volume clots while the construction of the catheter provides good column stiffness to avoid axial collapse and still maintain good flexibility.

  • Publication number: 20170086862
    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.

  • Patent number: 9445829
    Abstract: A clot retrieval device 1 for removing occlusive clot from a blood vessel, the device comprises an inner elongate body 3 having a collapsed delivery configuration and an expanded deployed configuration and an outer elongate body 2 at least partially overlying the inner elongate body 2. The outer elongate body 2 is expandable to a radial extent which is greater than the radial extent of the inner body 3 in the deployed configuration to define a clot reception space 11. The outer elongate body 2 comprises a distal end portion 24,49 and the inner elongate body 3 comprises a main body portion 10 and a distal portion which extends in the deployed configuration towards the outer elongate body 2 to a greater extent than the main body portion. The distal portion 10 of the inner elongate member 3 and the distal end portion 24,49 of the outer elongate body 2 together define a three dimensional protective structure to substantially prevent distal egress of clot or clot fragments from the device.
