Contour Neurovascular System™
Targets the neck of the aneurysm
Designed to treat a range of aneurysm morphologies including unruptured wide-necked bifurcation and bifurcation aneurysms:
Provides a combination of flow diversion at the neck of the aneurysm and flow disruption within the aneurysm sac;
Supports neo-intimal growth across mesh at neck and subsequent thrombosis of aneurysm;
Deployed with proven existing clinical techniques;
A single device occlusion that is re-sheathable & re-deployable;
Electrolytic method of detachment;
Strong IP portfolio - 3 patents issued and 3 patents pending;
No intra-arterial stabilizing component;
Reduces/eliminates need for dual anti-platelet therapy;
Simplified sizing approach compared to other intra-saccular devices (i.e. neck and widest diameter only).
How safe and effective are existing treatments for wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms?
Literature based objective performance criteria for safety and effectiveness

Meta-Analysis, Fiorella et al.
Description Outcome (1yr)
Wide Neck Bifurcation Aneurysm 2,795
Complete Occlusion 40%
Adequate Occlusion 70%
Conclusion: Conventional therapies for WNBAs are associated with relatively low rates of complete occlusion and peri-procedural complications are not uncommon. Newer therapies are needed for the treatment of these aneurysms. Until a ‘gold standard’ treatment strategy is established, these emerging technologies can be evaluated in comparison to the benchmark literature-derived OPC presented*.
What does it take to be a “big believer” in intrasaccular devices?
