Route 92 Medical has announced the publication of initial results from the SUMMIT NZ clinical trial—a single-arm, multicentre, prospective trial evaluating its proprietary Monopoint operating platform.
Results from the first 45 patients demonstrated that the Monopoint platform yielded an 80% first-pass effect with primary use of the HiPoint 88 (0.088-inch internal diameter [ID]) catheter, which is a super-bore catheter designed to consistently reach the proximal middle cerebral artery (MCA). The Route 92 HiPoint 88 aspiration catheter successfully reached the proximal MCA (M1 segment) in 100% of the cases attempted, as per a company press release. These results have been published online in the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery.
“The Monopoint operating platform with HiPoint 88 catheters delivered a step change in first-pass efficacy in the SUMMIT NZ trial, signalling clear potential for improved patient outcomes given the importance of clearing thrombus to save time and save brain,” said James Caldwell (Auckland City Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand), the paper’s first author. “The platform is designed to improve catheter deliverability, offering the advantage of greater simplicity for the operating physician to efficiently perform thrombectomy for patients.”

Chronic musculoskeletal pain has a vast global prevalence and economic burden. Conservative therapies are universally recommended but require patient engagement and self-management to be effective. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a 12-week digital care program (DCP) in a large population of patients with chronic knee and back pain.
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), through collaboration with the Society of Vascular Surgery’s Patient Safety Organization (SVS PSO) and their Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI), has expanded coverage for TCAR to include standard surgical risk patients within the VQI’s TCAR Surveillance Project (TSP). This decision is effective immediately and comes on the heels of the recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for expanded indications for the ENROUTE® Transcarotid Stent System to include patients at high risk and standard risk for adverse events from carotid endarterectomy (CEA).
