Plano, Texas, May 6, 2014 PRNewswire — Argon Medical Devices, Inc. announced today that the company has begun marketing the CLEANERXT Rotational Thrombectomy System as a new addition to the CLEANER family of dialysis products. With increased power and torque for cleaning wall-adherent thrombus, and the ability to be introduced through a 6 Fr sheath, CLEANERXT combines torque with trackability. Its innovative sinusoidal wire design is radiopaque and conforms to varying lumen diameters, actively cleaning wall-adherent thrombus.
Argon introduced the CLEANERXT Rotational Thrombectomy System at the 2014 Society of Interventional Radiology meeting in San Diego.
“We continuously look at ways to improve our product offerings so that physicians can provide safe and effective therapy to their patients,” stated George Leondis, President of Argon Medical Devices. “CLEANERXT provides a tremendous combination of power and minimal invasiveness. Among wall-contacting thrombectomy devices, CLEANERXT provides physicians an unmatched ability to effectively macerate wall-adherent thrombus on a 6 Fr device platform.”
The CLEANERXT Rotational Thrombectomy System was designed by Rex Medical, LP for mechanical declotting of native vessel dialysis fistulae and synthetic dialysis access grafts. According to the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), almost 400,000 patients undergo dialysis each year. With this product launch, patients who require thrombectomy will now have access to a more efficient and effective therapy option.
