Granted reimbursement of the Silk+ flow diverter on the French market

May 29, 2020

Balt is thrilled to announce today, the Silk+ reimbursement has been granted on the French market.

The original self-expandable Silk+ flow diverter is a 48 wires stent designed for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. It is delivered through VASCO+ microcatheter and allows to treat arteries with a diameter from 1.50 mm to 5.75 mm

Egon Wülfert, Senior Director, Global Clinical Affairs  & Xavier Gouin, France Sales Director at balt have commented « The French INRs regrettably endured the absence of the Silk+ for the past 6 months. The grant of the reimbursement is a major step for the aneurysm treatment in France and is the result of a fantastic collaboration between numbers of French INRs and Balt clinical team which is focused on generating clinical evidence to support BALT's technologies.”
