Rapid Medical™ Gains Approval in China for the World’s Only Adjustable Thrombectomy Device
Rapid Medical™, a leading developer of advanced neurovascular devices, announced Chinese approval for its TIGERTRIEVER revascularization device. With this milestone of National Medical Product Administration (NMPA) approval, TIGERTRIEVER becomes the first device to offer patient-specific solutions for removing blood clots from the brain to advance the treatment of ischemic stroke.
“This new approval for TIGERTRIEVER propels treatment for ischemic stroke patients in China,” says Ronen Eckhouse, co-founder and CEO at Rapid Medical. “We are fortunate to have an excellent partner with MicroPort Scientific Corporation, who understand the need to expand neurointerventional capabilities and individualized stroke care for these patients.”
TIGERTRIEVER technology, fueled by advancements in aerospace engineering, enables precise control during mechanical thrombectomy. Its unique operation changes these procedures from a passive to an active approach that accelerates clot capture and potentially reduces the risk of vascular injury during removal. Comparable, leading stent retrievers are self-expanding and static, which can lead to suboptimal clot removal and minimal vessel protection.
Published clinical studies demonstrate superiority to conventional stent retrievers. The results of the TIGER multicenter trial presented 3 statistically significant improvements– in restoring blood flow to the brain, good clinical outcomes, and reducing emboli to new territory–compared to an average from six pivotal stent retriever trials.1 Additionally, the TIGER trial showed fast procedure times, on par with aspiration alone2, driven by a very high rate of first-pass success.
“The successful launch of TIGERTRIEVER in China represents another stroke intervention innovation that can be applied in the real world, introducing the concept of tailored thrombectomy using an adjustable stent retriever that allows physicians to navigate procedures and unexpected circumstances with added control,” said Zhiyong Xie, President at MicroPort NeuroTech. “TIGERTRIEVER provides Chinese physicians with a new choice of neurological intervention medical devices that will benefit more patients.”
