Codman Neurovascular, a Codman & Shurtleff company, is launching in the U.S. and Europe two new aneurysm microcoils, the DELTAMAXX and ORBIT GALAXY G2, as well as the ENVOY DA distal access guiding catheter designed to navigate through the difficult carotid siphon. The microcoils are used to fill aneurysms in the brain that put the patient in mortal danger due to the risk of rupturing.
The DELTAMAXX Microcoil System features Codman’s DELTAWIND® technology, a unique triangular wind shape with natural deflection points that enables the coil to change direction more easily than traditional circular wind coils. This is the longest microcoil the company has ever introduced, with lengths of up to 60cm. The coil is compatible with microcatheters with inner lumen diameters ranging from 0.0165″ to 0.019″, such as Codman’s PROWLER® catheters, which can also accommodate smaller finishing coils.
“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, MD, Associate Professor of Neuroradiology and Vice Chairman of Radiology at West Virginia University Hospitals, Morgantown.
“This coil has enabled me to efficiently achieve high packing densities and aneurysm occlusion with the same catheter I use to deliver smaller coils.” Codman Neurovascular also introduced ORBIT GALAXY G2 Microcoils, a system of complex shaped, soft and highly conformable coils with random break points that has been shown to deliver high packing densities and result in low retreatment rates.1 These new coils are deployed with the ENPOWER® Detachment System, a push-button thermo-mechanical detachment that streamlines the coiling procedure.
Finally, the company introduced the new ENVOY® DA Guiding Catheter, its first distal access guiding catheter, which features a braid design, soft distal tip, and hydrophilic coating and larger inner lumen.
