How It Works

Thrombosis occurs when clots form and obstruct the blood vessels. If this occurs in a patient's arteries, it is called arterial 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 (myocardium). The primary reason to use an aspiration catheter is to remove the thrombus.

  • Superior Deliverability and Kink Resistance
    • The Export Advance™ aspiration catheter is stylet-based, enhancing stiffness in the shaft during catheter delivery and boosting kink resistance, trackability and pushability
    • Full Wall Variable Braiding Technology shaft construction provides variable levels of stiffness without joints for optimal catheter performance
      • Proximal shaft braiding enhances pushability
      • Distal shaft braiding increases flexibility
  • Buddy Wire Compatibility
    • Allows for extra support, when needed, in demanding cases
  • Dependable High-Performing Aspiration Power
    • Large extraction lumen (0.044" proximal; 0.043" distal) increases aspiration power
    • Soft, short, forward-facing tip design permits excellent particle capture
