Using Stryker’s Target Tetra® Detachable Coils – a clinical snapshot with Professor Satoshi Tateshima
New shape and soft, for where stability counts...
With a new shape that provides strong memory and yet soft at the same time, the novel Target Tetra® Detachable Coil is an excellent choice for treating small aneurysms. See why in this detailed video interview as Professor Satoshi Tateshima, neuroradiologist from UCLA Health and David Geffen School of Medicine (Los Angeles, CA, USA) presents his clinical experience using a coil which he describes as making “small aneurysm treatment much safer.”
Stability – of the microcatheter and the coil – is critical when positioning and entering a small aneurysm. Any jump or need for force could potentially cause a perforation. Yet, in his experience using the Target Tetra® Detachable Coil, Prof. Tateshima found the stability he needed without having to undersize the coil. Using a Tetra®, he found he could match the size of coil mass to the true size of the aneurysm and, with its inherent softness and cohesive nature of the Target Tetra® Detachable Coil loops, the Tetra® stayed safely in the aneurysm without “kicking out the microcatheter”.
If you think that this is counter intuitive – having a coil-strong memory, yet soft – then watch this video as Prof. Tateshima treats an Acom aneurysm with a 4.0mm height, 3.5mm width and 3.5mm neck – a case that perfectly illustrates the Target Tetra® Detachable Coil’s unique design and qualities. With little or no need to reposition the microcatheter or coil, Prof. Tateshima explains that you can “start from a Tetra® and finish with Tetra®”, allowing us to treat “a lot of patients with these coils”.
