Assessing Safety and Performance of the ANA Catheter System, Combined With a Stent Retriever in Acute Ischemic Stroke

2019-09-25 06:13:38 | BioPortfolio


The ANA catheter system (may also be designated as "ANA system", "ANA 18 -002" or "ANA device") is a distal access catheter designed to assist in neurovascular procedures by facilitating the insertion and guiding of other devices (i.e. retrieval devices and intravascular catheters) and restricting blood flow at the target position. It is a sterile, single-use, disposable intravascular device comprised of two coaxial catheters (delivery catheter and funnel catheter) consisting of sections of variable stiffness. The funnel catheter is comprised of a radiopaque nitinol braid (self-expanding funnel), covered by a continuous silicone coating that, when deployed, provides local and temporary flow restriction. The delivery catheter has a hydrophilic coating to reduce friction during use and a radiopaque marker on the distal end. Both catheters have Luer lock hubs on their proximal end.

The proposed study has been designed to collect prospective clinical evidence to compare the Anaconda ANA device to similar devices used for guiding and supporting stent retrievers during neurothrombectomy procedures. The protocol has been designed to replicate the patient population enrolled in prior studies of similar devices. The primary endpoint will be ability of the investigational device to facilitate stentriever deployment and neurothrombectomy in the anterior circulation, with successful reperfusion defined as achieving a modified Thrombolysis in Cerebral Infarction (mTICI) score of ≥2b in the target vessel with ≤3 passes of the investigational device without the use of rescue therapy. Follow-up at 24h, Day 5 (+/- 12 h) or discharge, whichever comes first and at 90 days will allow documentation of the clinical outcome of the neurothrombectomy procedure as a whole and detect any device related and other complications, making use of the ANA device for distal access.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.
