Occlutech won the European CE Mark for its minimally invasive Left Atrial Appendix (LAA) occluder, opening the door for it to be used on the continent. LAA occluders are used to help prevent strokes in those with atrial fibrillation.
The device is made of a nitinol mesh covered by a fibrous polyurethane coating and a loop anchor that seals to conform to the individual patient anatomies. The steerable delivery sheath can bend up to 180 degrees to be able to make a transseptal puncture and comfortably reach the LAA in most patients. Fast sealing is an additional feature allowing for quick procedure times.
