This is the first offering from Infinity Neuro which plans to launch a full range of products for the treatment of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke throughout 2023 and beyond. The Inspira™ aspiration catheters are physician inspired to deliver next-level navigation and aspiration performance; designed to access targeted vessels easily, quickly restore cerebral blood flow, and retrieve clots in patients experiencing acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to a large vessel occlusion (LVO). According to the company, Inspira™ is the first phase of a complementary integrated system which will offer greater ease-of-use and performance with first-to-market product innovations. Additionally, this milestone represents the company's commitment and ability to attain class III medical device approvals through the new, rigorous European MDR CE certification process which in today's market, medical device companies find challenging. This marks the first neurovascular device approved under the new European MDR CE certification process as an original submission. The European commercial launch of Inspira™ aspiration catheters are underway through a network of EU distributors.
Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries within and leading to the brain. An ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel to the brain is blocked by an embolus or blood clot. Worldwide, stroke remains the second-leading cause of death and the third-leading cause of death and disability combined. It is estimated that the global cost of stroke is over $725 billion.
