Title:
Comparative in vitro study of five mechanical embolectomy systems: effectiveness of clot removal and risk of distal embolization. 
Abstract:
INTRODUCTION: We report an in vitro study comparing the effectiveness of clot removal and clot fragmentation of five embolectomy systems. METHODS: A flow model was embolized with fresh and old thrombi, occluding an inner diameter of 2-5 mm simulating internal carotid artery (ICA), basilar artery (BA) and middle cerebral artery (MCA) branch occlusion. Embolectomy was performed using five retrieval systems: CATCH (Balt), Merci retriever (Concentric), InTime and Attracter (Boston Scientific), and t...    »
