Mo.Ma Ultra Proximal Cerebral Protection Device

Peripheral Interventions


Use the Mo.Ma Ultra proximal cerebral protection device to contain and remove all sizes of debris that can dislodge during interventional procedures in the carotid arteries. The Mo.Ma Ultra device with double-occlusion balloon system allows for proximal embolic protection to be established prior to crossing a carotid lesion.


Mo.Ma Ultra cerebral protection device is intended to be used during angioplasty and stenting of lesions located in the ICA and/or lesions involving the carotid bifurcation. This device allows protection of the brain from cerebral embolism during the entire duration of the intervention, thus preventing severe and disabling complications. The system allows achieving cerebral protection before target lesion crossing, plus allowing debris removal by blood aspiration at any stage during the procedure.

Mo.Ma double-balloon
Mo.Ma Ultra is indicated to be used in patients eligible for carotid angioplasty and/or stenting with stenosis involving the ICA and/or the carotid bifurcation and reference diameter of ECA from 3 to 6 mm and reference diameter of CCA from 5 to 13 mm.

Product Details

Proximal Cerebral Protection

Antegrade flow from the common carotid artery (CCA) and retrograde flow from the external common carotid artery (ECA) are temporarily suspended by dual inflation establishing proximal cerebral protection.

Double-occlusion Balloon System

  • Utilizes highly compliant, elastomeric balloons that provide atraumatic flow suspension and stability.

Guide-catheter Technology

  • Provides excellent trackability, support, and stability for ease of lesion crossing and accurate stent deployment.

Working Channel Exit Port Distal to CCA Balloon

  • Provides lesion access and effective, efficient aspiration of debris.*

Radiopaque Markers

  • Markers are centrally located in each balloon for precise positioning and orientation.

Optimal Device Selection

  • Mo.Ma Ultra device allows for selection of preferred wires, stents, and balloons during intervention.

High-capture Efficiency

  • Device facilitates the removal of all sizes of debris through aspiration.
