Ascyrus Medical’s Aortic Dissection Stent Cleared in Europe

Operative repairs of emergency type A aortic dissections require serious surgical skills and a complicated decision making process.

Ascyrus Medical, a company based out of Boca Raton, Florida, just won the European CE Mark to introduce its stenting system that works as an adjunct to the current surgical repair. According to the company, its Ascyrus Medical Dissection Stent (AMDS) “… is an arch remodeling hybrid graft designed as an adjunct to the current surgical reconstruction. The AMDS helps reduce the risk of complications and reoperations by treating malperfusion and stabilizing or reducing the size of the aorta, known as positive aortic remodeling.”

Here’s an animation of how the device is delivered and positioned:
