Perflow wins 4 patents for neurovascular technologyMarch 5, 2019
Perflow Medical has been issued four international patents that for the novel Stream Dynamic Neuro-Thrombectomy Net and Cascade Non-Occlusive Remodeling Net.
Perflow’s global portfolio of eight issued patents includes two new patents from the European Patent Office (EPO), one from the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), and one from the Japanese Patent Office (JPO).
Perflow’s Cerebral Net technology platform is designed to expand treatment options with real-time control and overall improved device performance. The company currently has two commercial products with CE Mark available for use in Europe, with a third product in late-stage development. The Stream Net, the company’s first product, has been used across Europe and provides full control and dynamic wall apposition during the treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The Cascade Net, which was launched last year, is a device that allows blood flow without the risk of coil entanglement during embolization of intracranial aneurysms.
Both devices allow the physician to manipulate the net diameter, length, and radial force to optimize contact with the vessel wall and improve control through tortuous anatomy during neurovascular procedures.
