Specific warnings for indication 3

  • The safety and effectiveness of the Trevo Retrievers in reducing disability has not been established in patients with large core infarcts (i.e., ASPECTS ≤7). There may be increased risks, such as intracerebral hemorrhage, in these patients.
  • The safety and effectiveness of the Trevo Retrievers in reducing disability has not been established or evaluated in patients with occlusions in the posterior circulation (e.g., basilar or vertebral arteries) or for more distal occlusions in the anterior circulation.
  • Users should validate their imaging software analysis techniques to ensure robust and consistent results for assessing core infarct size.

General warnings applied to all indications

  • Administration of IV t-PA should be within the currently approved window.
  • To reduce risk of vessel damage, adhere to the following recommendations
    • Do not perform more than six (6) retrieval attempts in same vessel using Retriever devices.
    • Maintain Retriever position in vessel when removing or exchanging Microcatheter.
  • To reduce risk of kinking/fracture, adhere to the following recommendations:
    • Immediately after unsheathing Retriever, position Microcatheter or Aspiration Catheter tip marker over the proximal section of the Retriever. Maintain this position during manipulation and withdrawal.
    • Do not rotate or torque Retriever.
    • Use caution when passing Retriever through stented arteries.
  • The Retriever is a delicate instrument and should be handled carefully. Before use and when possible during procedure, inspect device carefully for damage. Do not use a device that shows signs of damage. Damage may prevent device from functioning and may cause complications.
  • Do not advance or withdraw Retriever against resistance or significant vasospasm. Moving or torquing device against resistance or significant vasospasm may result in damage to vessel or device. Assess cause of resistance using fluoroscopy and if needed resheath the device to withdraw.
  • If Retriever is difficult to withdraw from the vessel, do not torque Retriever. Advance Microcatheter or Aspiration Catheter over the Retriever and remove devices as a unit. If undue resistance is met when withdrawing the Retriever into the Microcatheter, consider exchanging for a larger diameter Aspiration Catheter. Gently withdraw the Retriever and larger diameter catheter as a unit.
  • Administer anti-coagulation and anti-platelet medications per standard institutional guidelines.
  • Do not use open or damaged packages.
  • Do not expose Retriever to organic solvents.

  • Exposure to temperatures above 54°C (130°F) may damage device and accessories. Do not autoclave.
  • Use Retriever in conjunction with fluoroscopic visualization and proper anti-coagulation agents.
  • To prevent thrombus formation and contrast media crystal formation, maintain a constant infusion of appropriate flush solution through all catheter lumens.
  • Users should take all necessary precautions to limit X-ray radiation doses to patients and themselves by using sufficient shielding, reducing fluoroscopy times, and modifying X-ray technical factors whenever possible.

AXS Vecta Aspiration System

RX ONLY

Intended use/indications for use

The AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter, as part of the AXS Vecta Aspiration System is indicated in the revascularization of patients with acute ischemic stroke secondary to intracranial large vessel occlusive disease (within the internal carotid, middle cerebral – M1 and M2 segments, basilar, and vertebral arteries) within 8 hours of symptom onset.

Patients who are ineligible for intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV t-PA) or who failed IV t-PA therapy are candidates for treatment.

Device description

The AXS Vecta Aspiration System is composed of the following components:

  • AXS Vecta 71 or 74 Aspiration Catheter
  • Medela Dominant Flex Pump
  • AXS Universal Aspiration Tubing
  • AXS Universal Liner Set.

The AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter delivers aspiration from the Medela Dominant Flex Pump directly to the site of the occlusion to remove the clot. The AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter is a single lumen, flexible, variable stiffness catheter. It has a radiopaque marker band on the distal end and a Luer hub at the proximal end. The AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter shaft has a lubricious hydrophilic coating at the distal end (distal 25cm) to reduce friction during use. It is packaged with one Scout Introducer, one hemostasis valve, and two peel-away introducers.

The Scout Introducer may be used in conjunction with the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter to facilitate in the introduction of the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter into distal vasculature and aid in navigation to distal anatomy. The Scout Introducer has a lubricious hydrophilic coating at the distal end to reduce friction during use. The inner lumen of the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter is compatible with the Scout Introducer, guide wires and microcatheters. The inner lumen of the Scout Introducer is compatible with guide wires and microcatheters of an outer diameter of less than 0.044in.

The AXS Universal Aspiration Tubing serves as a conduit to supply vacuum from the Medela Dominant Flex Pump to the distal tip of the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter. The AXS Universal Aspiration Tubing provides a connection between the sterile and non-sterile environments. The proximal end of the AXS Universal Aspiration Tubing is connected to the AXS Universal Liner Set (outside of the sterile environment) while the distal end of the AXS Universal Aspiration Tubing is connected to the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter (inside the sterile environment). The AXS Universal Liner Set is connected to the Medela Dominant Flex Pump (also outside of the sterile environment).

The Medela Dominant Flex Pump is designed to generate vacuum for the AXS Vecta Aspiration System. When used as part of the AXS Vecta Aspiration System, the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter requires a minimum vacuum pressure of -68 kPa [-20.08 in Hg] from the Medela Dominant Flex Pump. The Medela Dominant Flex Pump is reusable, non-sterile, and intended to be utilized outside of the sterile environment.

The AXS Universal Liner Set is provided non-sterile and consists of an individually packaged canister liner and a ClotFinder specimen cup. The AXS Universal Liner Set is offered with and without a desiccant. The AXS Universal Liner Set is single-use and the repository for aspirated material.

Dimensions of the AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheter and Scout Introducer are included on the individual device label. The AXS Vecta Aspiration Catheters are available in 3 different lengths, the device configurations including the length of the Scout packaged with each catheter and the recommended Microcatheter length is presented in the table 1.0 below.
