First-of-its-Kind Permanent Filter for Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

We are committed to developing a new approach to stroke prevention in individuals with abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). A stroke typically occurs when a blood clot travels through the arteries of the neck (carotid arteries) and reaches the brain. Our device, Vine™, is a permanent filter implanted in the carotid arteries designed to prevent strokes from occurring by intercepting such blood clots. Vine™ is implanted through a thin needle in a simple procedure lasting just minutes. It is currently available for individuals with atrial fibrillation through participation in the CAPTURE II study that will soon commence in several European countries.
