Reverse Flow Neuroprotection
The ENROUTE® Transcarotid Neuroprotection System provides direct carotid access with
robust flow reversal prior to crossing the lesion for embolic protection during angioplasty and stenting. The device removes micro and macro emboli throughout the intervention for CEA-like neuroprotection in a less invasive approach
How does it work?
The ENROUTE® Transcarotid Neuroprotection System prevents embolic debris from flowing to the brain during carotid revascularization by reversing blood flow away from the brain. The flow reversal method does not rely on a distally placed filter to capture emboli before they reach the brain. Instead, a filter in the flow controller collects both small and large debris and filtered blood is returned via a sheath in the femoral vein.
