MIVI Neuroscience’s next-generation DAISe blood clot management system has had its first-in-human use for treatment of ischemic stroke.
The procedure took place in South America, the company said in a statement. DAISe is designed to remove a clot as well as filter and capture clot emboli that fracture during removal. It has a three-dimensional, vessel-conforming meshwork of hundreds of polymeric fibers that act as a mechanical backstop to capture debris as small as 40 um while maintaining blood flow through the device. Device delivery is similar to that of a stent retriever.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
