Covidien micro catheter cleared for U.S. sale

  • The FDA approves Covidien's (COV -0.2%) Apollo Onyx delivery micro catheter, the first detachable tip micro catheter cleared for sale in the U.S. It is designed to mitigate the technical challenges of tip retrieval during Onyx LES embolizations of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs). A bAVM occurs when a bundle of blood vessels in the brain or on its surface bypass brain tissue and directly divert blood from arteries to veins. The condition affects one in 200-500 people and is more common in males than females.
