Comaneci Sessions Summary:




Dr. Mani Puthuran 
Walton Centre NHS Trust
Liverpool, UK

26 cases mostly in 2017
33% Elective
72% PCOM and ICA

"I found the Comaneci to be a very good and stable adjunct device. There was no flow disruption, and it proved to have a good safety profile."

Dr. Stanimir Sirakov 
UH St. Ivan Rilski
Sofia, Bulgaria

Standard use 2017:
54 patients - 49 Post SAH

"…in our experience, the Comaneci is an effective innovative technique for the treatment of complex and wide-neck intracranial aneurysms…"

Dr. Marcin MIŚ
Medical University Hospital Wrocław, Poland

36 cases - 15 Post SAH 

"The Comaneci has become one of the foundational interventional tools used by our neuroradiologists. It's safe and easy to use, and preparation is fast. It's also good for Bifurcation and wide neck aneurisms."

Dr. Batuhan Kara
Bakirkoy Dr. Sadi Konuk Training Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey 

Can adjustable remodeling mesh eliminate the need for double stent assisted techniques for the coiling of wide neck bifurcation aneurysm?

"While normally we use two stents on a bifurcation, we attempted the novel approach of treating with just one stent and the Comaneci. We found it to be a straightforward technique, the efficacy of which was proven when our follow-ups showed complete occlusions in

every case.

Mechanical Thrombectomy with Tiger, experience in Spain:



Dr. Hidalgo, Dr. Lucas and Dr. Olier
Complejo Hospitalario Torrecárdenas, Almería.
Hospital de Navarra, Pamplona

Retrospective study from 19 patients: 12 as a First-option device; 7 following failure of other device.

90% of the cases had recanalization rate of TICI 2b/3, with an average of 1.6 passes.


"Without doubt, using the Tiger adjustable clot retriever for anterior cerebral circulation thrombectomy in patients with acute ischemic stroke is safe and feasible. Our preliminary experience demonstrates similar angiographic results compared to the best reported data in the literature, and better than our experience with other Stentrievers. The most remarkable advantages are good radiological visibility, capability to open and close the device and excellent navigability."
