The First Mechanical Thrombectomy Device Indicated for Pulmonary Embolism

The FlowTriever is an over-the-wire system designed to:

| Remove clot through both mechanical and aspiration mechanisms of action

| Capture and remove large clot burden from big vessels

| Treat in a single session

| Eliminate the need for thrombolytics

| Eliminate ICU Stay

FlowTriever Toolkit

Triever Aspiration Catheter - New Gen.4 Trievers

The Triever Aspiration Catheters feature a highly trackable, large lumen catheter, and large bore syringe designed to rapidly extract large volumes of clot while limiting blood loss when used in conjunction with the FlowSaver.

Available in 3 sizes:

  • Triever16: 16 French
  • Triever20: 20 French
  • Triever24: 24 French
New Gen.4 Trievers

Advancements have been made to the Triever24 and Triever20 Catheters to enhance trackability and support, aspiration flow rate*, and ease of use.

Key Features: 

  • Enhanced trackability and support to navigate tortuous anatomy.
  • Increased aspiration in Triever24 Catheter to maximize thrombus removal with ~20% cc/sec more than previous generation*
  • Improved ease of use through new dilator twist lock, tapered dilator tip and more durable hemostasis valve.

Gen.4 Triever sizes: 20 & 24 French.

Triever20 Curve

The Triever20 Curve™ is a  fully braided large bore catheter with a customizable 260⁰ bend designed for improved navigability & torqueability for challenging anatomies such as the left PA rainbow, TA, IVC and CIT in RA.

Key Features:

  • Telescopic Steerability for targeted aspiration: Customizable angled tip for precise catheter placement by telescoping through the Triever24
  • 260⁰ directionality range for improved navigation: Increased utility in challenging anatomies (RA, PA, IVC)
  • One Price, One Patient, Many Choices: Triever20 Curve™ is included in the FlowTriever Per Procedure Pricing to use complimentarily with any FlowTriever products.
Triever24 with FLEX Technology

The Triever24 with FLEX technology provides increased flexibility through its softer durometer jacket, featuring a highly trackable, large lumen catheter, and large bore syringe designed to rapidly extract large volumes of clot while limiting blood loss when used in conjunction with the FlowSaver.

Key Features: 

  • 41% More Flexible than existing Triever24 catheter*
  • Superior Trackability to better navigate tortuous anatomies and smoothly deliver the catheter to the left PA and through dilated right hearts
  • Effective Aspiration to enhance Whoosh™ technique aspiration for maximum clot removal

No changes to the recommended procedure steps for the improved Triever24 Aspiration Catheter!

Intri24 Introducer Sheath

FlowTriever 2

The FlowTriever 2 catheter technology features a new disk shape designed to capture and remove acute to chronic clot. 

Key Features: 

  • Laser cut element with proximal open cell design for optimized clot clearance
  • New disk shape designed to disrupt clot, improving effectiveness of aspiration
  • Increased usable length (120 cm) for more distal treatment
  • 52% shorter deployment length
  • Versatile sizing to treat vessels 6-16 mm in diameter

*The FlowTriever2 Catheter is not indicated for the treatment of pulmonary embolism

FlowSaver™ 

Blood Return System

Enabling Bloodless Thrombectomy for Pulmonary Embolism 

The FlowSaver™ is designed to be used with the FlowTriever System to reduce blood loss by filtering aspirated thrombi and blood for reinfusion back to the patient, thus enabling bloodless thrombectomy for pulmonary embolism (PE) procedures. 

The FlowSaver is compatible with Triever Catheters and includes a 40 micron filtration system, a clot reservoir, and a 60cc collection syringe. The accessible filtration design allows for clot examination and reservoir cleaning for more filtrations. Filtered blood can be reintroduced using a standard luer lock with the 60cc collection syringe.

 

Indications For Use:

The FlowTriever® system is indicated for: (1) the non-surgical removal of emboli and thrombi from blood vessels; and (2) injection, infusion and/or aspiration of contrast media and other fluids into or from a blood vessel. The FlowTriever system is intended for use in the peripheral vasculature and for the treatment of pulmonary embolism.Triever catheters are indicated for: (1) the non-surgical removal of emboli and thrombi from blood vessels; and (2) injection, infusion and/or aspiration of contrast media and other fluids into or from a blood vessel. Triever catheters are intended for use in the peripheral vasculature and for the treatment of pulmonary embolism. The Triever20 Curve is used coaxially within the Triever24 for: (1) The non-surgical removal of emboli and thrombi from vessels (2) Injection, infusion, and/or aspiration of contrast media and other fluids into or from a blood vessel: The Triever20 Curve is intended for use in the peripheral vasculature and for the treatment of pulmonary embolism. The Triever20 Curve is not indicated for use with FlowTriever Catheters.
Triever catheters are also intended for use in treating clot in transit in the right atrium, but not in conjunction with FlowTriever Catheters.
The Triever20 Curve must be used within the Triever24.
The FlowTriever2® catheter is indicated for: (1) the non-surgical removal of emboli and thrombi from blood vessels; and (2) injection, infusion and/or aspiration of contrast media and other fluids into or from a blood vessel. The FlowTriever2® catheter is intended for use in the peripheral vasculature.The FlowSaver® blood return system is used with Triever catheters for autologous blood transfusion.See Instructions for Use for complete Indications for Use, contraindications, warnings, and precautions.
