Aspiration Catheter

Export AP Aspiration Catheter

The Full-Wall Variable Braiding Technology used in the Export® AP Aspiration Catheter helps reduce the incidence of kinks and improve overall deliverability, even in the most challenging cases.

 

How the Export AP Aspiration Catheter Works

Thrombosis occurs when clots form and obstruct the blood vessel. If this occurs in a patient’s arteries, it is called arterial thrombosis. In veins it’s referred to as venous thrombosis. When blood flow is interrupted, the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen. Prolonged oxygen deprivation can lead to death (necrosis) of the heart muscle (or myocardium). The primary reason to use an aspiration catheter is to remove the thrombus.
