The quest for the “first pass effect” (FPE) in mechanical thrombectomy has led to superior outcomes in stroke treatment. However, current devices achieve FPE in less than half of patients. Enter the Gravity stent-retriever, featuring innovative double-fusiform cell technology. A study aimed to evaluate its efficacy compared to existing stent-retrievers.

The study’s findings are promising. The Gravity stent-retriever, with its unique double-fusiform cell technology, shows potential for superior efficacy in treating both soft and hard clots. This innovation could mark a significant step forward in improving the outcomes of mechanical thrombectomy procedures.
