Vesalio has launched a NeVa NET 4mm device to treat acute ischaemic stroke due to large vessel occlusion, a press release reports.

The company states that this introduction builds on the success of NeVa NET 5.5mm in international markets, and follows promising findings from studies published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Neurology and the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery.

Vesalio notes that both the 5.5mm and the newly launched 4mm sizes incorporate NeVa NET’s integrated micro-filter—a patented feature aimed at preventing the escape of clot particles into new or distal territories. Patented distal net filtration complements the NeVa device’s all-clots capability, the company adds.

“The publications on our NET micro-filtration technology highlight the significant value it brings to patients,” said Gustavo Prado, vice president of Development and Operations at Vesalio. “Both studies show higher first-pass rates and fewer distal emboli compared to competitors, with notable success in preventing emboli larger than 1mm. As clinical research consistently reiterates the importance of rapid, high-quality recanalisation for better patient outcomes, these findings are very encouraging.”

“We are excited to be among the first centers using NeVa NET,” said Paul Bhogal of NHS Royal London (London, UK). “Our team has been eagerly anticipating the release of the 4mm size. Our experience with NeVa has been excellent and in our cases, we are seeing very high first pass effect (≥eTICI2c). The new NeVa NET holds much promise and the fact the 4mm version can be used with 0.021” microcatheters is wonderful. I believe that this new device will, in conjunction with other technologies such as large-bore aspiration catheters and BGCs, offer the best chances of complete recanalisation on first pass and better reperfusion for the brain. My initial experience has indeed been very good, and this is effectively my go to device for M1 and ICA occlusions.”

Vesalio advises that NeVa and NeVa NET are CE-marked but not cleared in the USA.
