'ReCover', one of the latest devices from Campbell CA based Lazarus Effect, may offer relief to over 2 million people in Europe who become stroke patients, each year. Some 78% of stoke cases are ischemic, occuring when the blood supply to the brain is blocked.

ReCover features a stent-based clot retriever with an integrated nitinol mesh protective segment that automaticallycovers ansd protects the thrombus as the device is removed, helping to prevent clot fragmentation or embolism and secondary stroke which commonly occur during thrombectomy procedures. The device integrates protection directly onto a proven stent retriever design and could reduce the number of devices needed in thrombectomy procedures. 

ReCover will be presented at the Society for Neurointerventional Surgery (SNIS) Annual Meeting in San Diego. Recent CE Mark approval paves the way for the launch of ReCover throughout the continent, in 2013.  It is one of a range of Lazarus Effect products designed for treating ischemic stroke which makes use of patent-pending wire-frame technology.
