EU Approves Nfocus Echo Guiding Catheter
July 29, 2009—Nfocus Neuromedical Inc. (Palo Alto, CA) announced that it has earned European CE Mark approval for the Echo distal-access guiding catheter. The company made the announcement at the 6th Annual Meeting of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery held July 27 to 31 in Boca Raton, Florida. The Echo has been cleared in Europe to provide support and vessel access in peripheral, coronary, and neurovascular interventional and diagnostic procedures. The guiding catheter is atraumatic and flexible within the distant and smaller target vessel while providing stable and firm support in the larger vessels. The device's unibody construction provides suppleness at the distal end and exceptional support in the proximal section, the company stated.
