Explanation of Thrombectomy Devices Included in the CER

Catheter aspiration thrombectomy uses a catheter that is advanced over a guidewire to the thrombus whereby syringe suction is used to aspirate the debris. Devices used for this procedure include the DiverTM, DiverTM CE, Export®, ProntoTM, RescueTM, Thrombuster®, and TransVascular Aspiration Catheter®.

Mechanical thrombectomy devices apply energy through saline jets or a rotating catheter head to facilitate breakup of the thrombus prior to its active aspiration. These devices include the AngioJet® and X-Sizer®.
