SAN MATEO, Calif., June 06, 2022 -- Route 92 Medical, Inc., a private medical technology company dedicated to improving outcomes for patients undergoing neurovascular intervention, today announced the publication of initial results of the SUMMIT NZ clinical trial, a single-arm, multi-center, prospective trial evaluating the proprietary Monopoint operating platform. Results from the first 45 patients demonstrated that the Monopoint platform yielded an 80% first pass effect (FPE1) with primary use of the HiPoint™ 88 (.088in ID) catheter, 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. The results were published in the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery online2.
“The Monopoint operating platform with HiPoint 88 catheters delivered a step change in first pass efficacy in the SUMMIT NZ trial, signaling clear potential for improved patient outcomes given the importance of clearing thrombus to save time and save brain,” said Dr. James Caldwell, attending physician at Auckland City Hospital and 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.”
