Valor Medical, a neurology device company, has received CE mark approval for Neucrylate AN for treating cerebral aneurysms.
Neucrylate AN is a liquid embolic device that is injected through a microinfusion catheter into the aneurysm.
When Neucrylate AN comes in contact with the blood in the aneurysm it immediately changes from a liquid into a porous, elastic, sponge like material.
Unlike conventional micro-coils used for treating cerebral aneurysms Neucrylate AN fills the entire aneurysm regardless of its size or shape.
Valor Medical founder and CMO Charles Kerber said Neucrylate AN is another tool for treating cerebral aneurysms, especially those with wide necks and the larger aneurysms of complicated shape.
