- INVEST-REGISTRY: Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Surgical Treatment with Apollo in Patients with Brain Hemorrhage: A Prospective Multicenter Registry
The primary objective of this multicenter prospective registry is to provide additional safety, technical outcomes, and clinical outcomes data for minimally invasive endoscopic surgery (MIES) with Apollo for the evacuation of supratentorial brain hemorrhage in adult patients w...
- COAST: Coiling of Aneurysms Smaller Than 5mm With HyperSoft®
The primary objective of this post-marketing Study is to assess the clinical and imaging outcomes in the endovascular treatment of small (= 4.9 mm) intracranial aneurysms utilizing the HyperSoft® 3D (and HydroSoft® 3D, when commercially available) and HyperSoft® helical coils ...
- LVO CHAMP: Large Vessel Occlusion - Collateral Health Assessment in Minor Stroke Patients
This is a prospective, single-arm, observational study to evaluate the course of patients presenting with acute stroke with large vessel occlusion and minor stroke symptoms, to evaluate the factors associated with neurological deterioration. The purpose of this observational s...
- A Phase II, Randomized, Controlled Trial of Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Surgery with Apollo versus Medical Management in Supratentorial Intraparenchymal Hemorrhage
The primary aim of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for supratentorial intracranial hemorrhage is to achieve an atraumatic evacuation of blood products from the brain to prevent the secondary injury that occurs after the initial bleed. The purpose of this Phase II randomized t...
