The Santa Rosa, Calif.-based company produces the Sentinel embolic protection device designed to trap blood clots and prevent stroke during heart valve replacement procedures.
The Sentinel device uses a pair of filters, with 1 in the brachiocephalic artery and another in the left common carotid artery to trap debris released during transcatheter aortic valve replacements which could cause a cerebral embolism.
