CONTROL MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

WELCOME

Thrombectomy needs vary based on the size, location, and age of thrombus.

Sometimes subtle low force is needed, other times full-force is required. Certain procedures benefit from continuous force…other procedures only need a quick spot, or touch-up, targeted force. Yet in other situations, pulsed force to rapidly cycle between full and no force is required.

Basic syringe-based systems lack this versatility as syringes offer limited force, control, & volume. Typically, syringes only fill 30ml at a time requiring repeated attachment, stopcock manipulation, filling, detachment, drainage, and re-attachment to catheters. Slow, messy, risky, and inefficient.

Electromechanical systems may deliver more force and volume than basic syringes, but add complexity and cost to the procedure with limited tactile feel and control.

The Control Mechanical Thrombectomy System delivers new control during thrombectomy. Users instantly start, stop, increase, decrease, maintain, and pulse thrombectomy force.

Mechanical Thrombectomy made easy.

Control Medical Technology

CONTROL MECHANICAL ASPIRATOR™

Electromechanical systems can provide high aspiration force and volume, but are expensive, difficult to set up, require training, require service, and do not let the clinician feel or control aspiration like a hand-held device.

Small syringes are easy to operate but are limited in aspiration volume and will lose aspiration force quickly if air enters into the needle, catheter, trocar, or tube through cavitation, degassing, or connectivity leakage.

Large syringes can aspirate more volume and are less susceptible to loss of force if air enters the barrel, but are difficult to operate requiring two hands to pull the plunger back.

All standard syringes lack the ability to quickly purge air that enters into the circuit , allow the user to instantly increase or decrease force without accidentally re-injecting the aspirant, or perform pulsed aspiration.

CONTROL MECHANICAL THROMBECTOMY™

CONTINUOUS & PULSED MECHANICAL THROMBECTOMY

Syringe-based thrombectomy systems offer limited speed, force, volume & control. Electric pump systems may deliver increased force and volume, but many add complexity and cost to the procedure.

The Control Mechanical Thrombectomy System delivers new control during thrombectomy. Users instantly start, stop, increase, decrease, maintain, and pulse thrombectomy force.

Squeezing the handles increases force and releasing handles stops it. A one-way valve on the plunger purges air in the barrel to maintain thrombectomy force. A one-way valve on the barrel prevents re-injection of the aspirant. The dual valves and a drain bag combine to create a closed fluid system to eliminate repeated syringe-catheter detachments and drainage.

Control Thrombectomy Catheters may also be connected to electric pumps.

  • Instantly Start, Stop, Increase or Decrease Force
  • Continuous & Pulsed Force
  • Reset Force With Each Release-Squeeze Cycle
  • Closed System…275+ ml Volume Capacity
  • Large-Lumen 5 – 11F Over-the-Wire (OTW) Catheters
