Medrad Interventional has announced the most recent addition to the Solent family of thrombectomy catheters, designed for large, difficult”to”remove thrombus for peripheral vasculature. The Solent Omni joins the family in a 120cm length, offering a longer reach as compared to the 90cm Solent Proxi.
The Solent catheters are enabled for Power”Pulse Delivery, allowing them to be used to power”infuse lytic into the thrombus. The family is part of the growing portfolio of specialized thrombectomy devices available for use with the AngioJet Ultra System. In response to requests from interventionalists, the Solent catheters offer the highest clot”removing power in the AngioJet range and are the first to allow swapping of guidewires during the procedure. A port with stop cock has been added to the catheter’s hub to facilitate in situ contrast injection. The Solent catheters are also constructed with flexible, polymer”clad spiral shafts and hydrophilic coating on the distal section to improve handling compared to earlier designs.
Like all AngioJet thrombectomy catheters, the Solent catheters are based on the AngioJet Cross”stream Technology – utilising high”speed saline jets contained inside the catheter tip to create a powerful low-pressure zone that entrains and removes clot.
