The LUNA AES is used to treat brain aneurysms. The LUNA has a self-expandable and multilayer implant made up of a nickel-titanium alloy called Nitinol. The device compresses easily within a catheter and then readily opens to full size once it is deployed within an aneurysm. It acts as a plug by blocking the blood supply and providing a scaffold to encourage tissue growth across the aneurysm opening.
