Route 92 Medical Receives the First FDA Clearance for a Complete Stroke Treatment System
Tuesday, April 25, 2023
Route 92 Medical, Inc. announced that it has received the 510(k) clearance for the FreeClimb™ 70 Reperfusion System which includes a FreeClimb 70 Aspiration Catheter along with a Tenzing® 7 Delivery Catheter.
The FreeClimb 70 Reperfusion System enables physicians to treat patients experiencing an acute ischemic stroke by removing clots rapidly and safely. This innovative, first-to-market system is designed to work together harmoniously for superior deliverability and high procedural efficiency, making it a more refined bi-axial approach for restoring blood flow to the brain during endovascular thrombectomy procedures.
The FreeClimb 70 Reperfusion System is the first fully integrated solution designed around the Tenzing® 7 delivery catheter, which offers superior navigation and predictable access to occluded distal vessels without the need for a guidewire. The system’s advanced design eliminates the ledge effect commonly found in large-bore catheters.
The FreeClimb 70 Reperfusion System is part of Route 92 Medical’s growing catalog of endovascular interventional devices being designed to refine and stroke treatment. The company is currently recruiting participants for the SUMMIT MAX clinical trial, which will support regulatory submissions for the next-generation Monopoint® Platform, a super-bore HiPoint™ 88 catheter delivered with Tenzing 8 for thrombectomy procedures.
