Executive Summary

Genesis Medical Interventional is billing its F.A.S.T. (Facilitated Aspiration/Suction Thrombectomy) Funnel Catheter as "an elegantly simple solution" to more effectively remove particulate from the blood in cardiovascular disease. The funnel catheter is delivered proximal to the lesion, so that debris is captured upstream. The funnel occluder also harnesses native blood pressure for occlusion, which minimizes the device's force against the vessel wall.
