Neurovascular Embolization System

Intracranial aneurysms are localized dilations of an arterial wall, which tend to be circular in shape and are associated with a weakening of the structure of the artery.  In 2015 alone, more than 200,000 cases of ruptured and unruptured brain aneurysms were treated worldwide.

The fluoroscopic image below illustrates the use of embolization coils to treat an intracranial aneurysm. Shape Memory Medical Inc is developing a device incorporating Shape Memory Polymer (SMP) foam as an exciting potential new treatment option for physicians treating patients suffering from intracranial aneurysms.
