On January 22 and 23, a diverse group of physicians from 8 different countries trained on new approaches for clot retrieval with the NeVa™ Drop Zone Retrieval Technique at the Vesalio Clot Interaction Workshops that took place at the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute.
Participants started by discovering the design differences of the NeVa Thrombectomy device and how the Drop Zones offer an alternative mechanism of interaction with different types of thrombus. After discussing the impressive clinical results of NeVa and the value of improving on first pass rates, they got a chance to perform several thrombectomy procedures with different clot types and sizes. The participants of these sessions were particularly fired up about pushing the limits of the NeVa Drop Zones, experimenting with hard clots as big as 4cm, tandem occlusions, and elastic clot varieties. Some of the newer members of the NeVa product family, such as the NeVa T5, with five Drop Zones and the 6 mm NeVa were also tested in an atmosphere of a convivial challenge during the two sessions.
VESALIO would like to express gratitude to Dr. Juan Macho, Dr. Alejandro Tomasello and Dr. Marc Ribo for their support and proctoring this event as well as to all the participants for taking time out of their busy practice to attend these workshops.
