Philips Healthcare parent Royal Philips said it has launched QuickClear, a single-use mechanical thrombectomy system.
The compact unit includes an all-in-one aspiration pump and catheter for removal of blood clots from the vessels of the peripheral arterial and venous systems, according to the vendor. Its range of catheters include a 10-French aspiration catheter, which provides 59% more aspiration volume than 8-French aspiration catheters, Philips said.
QuickClear has garnered U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and is now available in the U.S. Philips said it plans to also bring QuickClear to other markets around the world. Auntminnie
