The new system is supported by an enhanced detachment system designed to improve microcatheter stability and provide an optimized detachment zone for coils.

The family of framing, filling and finishing coils used during a minimally invasive endovascular procedure is designed to help doctors individualize intervention based on the unique anatomy of the aneurysm.

Offering coils designed for each step of the procedure may help clinicians achieve aneurysm stability, effective neck coverage and the packing density needed for treatment of brain aneurysms.

The enhanced detachment system provides the physician with improved microcatheter stability. Tactile fluoro markers on the delivery wire improve visibility and control during the procedure, potentially reducing X-ray exposure time for patients and hospital staff.

"The Codman Neuro family of coils and detachment system provide the best of both worlds; a softer detachment and three types of coils that help me individualize treatment based on the anatomy of the aneurysm," said Ajit S. Puri, MD, Division of Neurointerventional Surgery at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.
