Boston's thrombi removal system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has given Boston Scientific 510(k) clearance to sell its Rio aspiration catheter for removing thrombi from arteries. The device is comprised of two tubular cavities. The primary lumen is used to extract the thrombus. It is open at one end and attached via an extension tube to a 20cc locking syringe on the other. The syringe is used to apply suction and aspirate the thrombus from the vessel. The second lumen accommodates a guide wire, which is used to move the catheter into position within the target artery.
