Codman & Shurtleff Releases New Microcoil Technology
Posted on August 16, 2012 @ 10:56 am
Codman Neurovascular, a unit of Codman & Shurtleff Inc., has released Deltamaxx Microcoil System and Orbit Galaxy G2 Microcoils, which for the first time puts Orbit Galaxy Coils on the Enpower Detachment System, developed by Micrus Endovascular. Both new microcoil systems are now available in the United States and Europe.
“We are now seeing the benefits of the full integration of Codman Neurovascular and Micrus Endovascular in bringing meaningful innovation and procedural solutions to patients, clinicians and health care institutions throughout the world,” said P. Laxminarain, president of Codman worldwide. “Codman Neurovascular has launched six new products already in 2012 and we continue to build on one of the broadest and strongest portfolios in the neurovascular field.”
“The Deltamaxx System offers a unique combination of long, 18-system coils with Deltawind technology that can be seamlessly delivered through a 14 system microcatheter,” said Ansaar T. Rai, M.D., associate professor of neuroradiology and vice chairman of radiology at West Virginia University Hospitals, Morgantown, W.V. “This coil has enabled me to efficiently achieve high packing densities and aneurysm occlusion with the same catheter I use to deliver smaller coils.” Ansaar also is a paid consultant to Codman.
The Orbit Galaxy G2 Microcoils are a system of complexly-shaped, soft and highly conformable coils with random break points that delivers high packing densities and results in low retreatment rates. These new coils are deployed with the Enpower Detachment System, a push-button thermo-mechanical detachment that is meant to streamline the coiling procedure.
Finally, the new Envoy DA Guiding Catheter, Codman’s first distal access guiding catheter, features a braid design, soft distal tip, and hydrophilic coating and larger inner lumen.
Raynham, Mass.-based Codman & Shurtleff is a neurosurgery, neurovascular and neuromodulation technology company that develops devices for hydrocephalus management, neuro intensive care and cranial surgery as well as aneurysm coils, vascular reconstruction devices and other technologies used in the endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms and stroke. Codman is part of the DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).
Also a Johnson & Johnson company, Micrus Vascular operates under the Codman Neurovascular umbrella. It was originally acquired by JNJ to work with Codman on products and technologies for treating cerebral aneurysms.
