J&J‘s DePuy division has released the ORBIT GALAXY Detachable Coil System for endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms. The coil is manufactured to have a random flex pattern to more thoroughly fill an aneurysm’s volume.
More from the press release:
ORBIT GALAXY includes the complete range of stretch resistant Frame, Fill and XTRASOFT™ Finishing coils required to treat aneurysms. The new coils feature a unique, complex random loop design. This shape makes the coils highly conformable and enables them to seek and fill open spaces in cerebral aneurysms to achieve high packing densities, which have been correlated with low patient retreatment rates.
ORBIT GALAXY leverages design elements from CODMAN’s TRUFILL DCS ORBIT® coils, but adds new features including stretch resistance, the soft, complex XTRASOFT Finishing coil, and the stable, conformable Frame coil.
Codman’s proprietary manufacturing process gives each coil its own unique and random, complex shape. The use of complex, random loop coils have been shown to result in significantly higher packing than helical coils and complex coils with pre-determined shapes.
