Nashville, TN, September 16, 2020 Vesalio announces it has executed additional exclusive distribution agreements in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. With these new partnerships, the NeVa™ Thrombectomy System has gained market coverage in 53 countries. “The expansion of the NeVa product line and impressive clinical data are driving strong interest from top distribution companies globally, accelerating our growth momentum. We expect to add additional markets by the end of 2020 and into 2021 as we approach US FDA clearance”, reported William von Brendel, VP, International Business.
To support the onboarding of stroke centers in the expanded markets, Vesalio has broadened its training programs to include NeVa Induction Webinars™. This virtual platform has allowed Vesalio to onboard over 20 stroke centers in the past three months. Diane Demet Tangun, VP, Market Development commented, “Enhancing virtual training was necessary given the limitations posed by the pandemic and the desire of new physicians to utilize Vesalio’s Drop Zone™ technology. The NeVa first pass recanalization rates attained by physicians continue to impress and drive new interest.”
A recent NeVa publication by Akpinar et al. in Interventional Neuroradiology once again reports remarkable first-pass recanalization rates in a multi-center, real-life setting. “The data from this study is particularly compelling as the high rate of first pass success was achieved largely without the use of balloon guide catheters, which demonstrates the effectiveness and versatility of the NeVa platform”, remarked Tangun.
