BIOTRONIK is releasing its new 3Flow aspiration catheter, a device designed for retrieving thrombi in a fast an efficient manner.
The needle has a wide inner lumen allowing for large particles to pass through. The attached locking syringe features a large 60ml capacity to be able to perform most aspirations without having to switch it out.

Its hydrophilic distal coating and smooth tip design furthermore ensure that excellent deliverability and optimal kink resistance are provided by the proximal high performance thermoplastic polymer shaft.
“The large syringe doubles the aspiration time compared to standard 30ml syringes, which avoids switching syringes in many cases and allows to better focus on the accuracy of the procedure”, says Dr. Henrik Schneider from the University Hospital in Rostock, Germany. “At the same time, the large inner lumen catheter allows for aspiration of larger thrombotic particles and causes less blockages.”
