Mechanical Thrombectomy

Mechanical thrombectomy devices vary in their working mechanism depending on their ability to actively fragment atherosclerotic thrombus material prior to aspiration. Studies on the safety, efficacy, and device limitations have spurred an interest in percutaneous techniques for thrombus debulking as stand‐alone therapy or an adjunct to pharmacologic thrombolysis. These devices have various mechanisms or combinations of mechanisms to optimize thrombus removal.
