BOSTON, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CereVasc, LLC, a company focused on improving the care of patients with communicating hydrocephalus announced today the presentation of early test data of its eShunt System at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurological SurgeryCarl Heilman, M.D., Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA, presented the results of bench-top, cadaver and animal testing that led to the development of the current eShunt System, to an audience of neurosurgical experts attending the annual scientific meeting.

"I think it was important to share our early results with the eShunt System with the well-informed audience that attends this meeting," said Dr. Heilman.  "The need for new approaches for treatment of patients with this common neurological disorder is clear and meeting attendees with whom I spoke overwhelmingly expressed excitement and support for the eShunt approach."

"While its still early in the development of our technology, we believe that the eShunt System has the potential to transform the treatment of many patients who deal with the shortcomings of current, 60 year-old, open surgical standard of care," said Dan Levangie, Chairman of CereVasc, LLC.  "The eShunt System represents an entirely new and novel approach that aligns very well with the recent migration of open neurosurgical procedures to minimally invasive, endovascular treatments."
