Codman Neurovascular launches two new microcoil systems, new distal access catheter at SNIS

Codman Neurovascular has announced the launch of the Deltamaxx Microcoil System, and Orbit Galaxy G2 Microcoils, which for the first time puts Orbit Galaxy coils on the EnpowerDetachment System, developed by Micrus Endovascular. Both new microcoil systems are now available in the United States and Europe. 


The announcement was made at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) 9th Annual Meeting where Codman Neurovascular featured the two new microcoil systems alongside the Envoy DA, a new distal access guiding catheter that facilitates navigation through tortuous portions of the carotid siphon and provides the stability required for complex neurointerventional procedures.


The DeltamaxxMicrocoil System features Codman’s Deltawindtechnology, a unique triangular wind shape with natural deflection points that enables the coil to change direction more easily than traditional circular wind coils. This is the longest microcoil the company has ever introduced, with lengths of up to 60cm. The coil is compatible with microcatheters with inner lumen diameters ranging from 0.0165” to 0.019”, such as Codman’s Prowlercatheters, which can also accommodate smaller finishing coils.


Codman Neurovascular also introduced Orbit Galaxy G2 Microcoils, a system of complex shaped, soft and highly conformable coils with random break points that has been shown to deliver high packing densities and result in low re-treatment rates. These new coils are deployed with the EnpowerDetachment System, a push-button thermomechanical detachment that streamlines the coiling procedure.


Finally, the company introduced the new Envoy DA Guiding Catheter, its first distal access guiding catheter, which features a braid design, soft distal tip, and hydrophilic coating and larger inner lumen.
