Product Description

EKOS therapy is a minimally invasive system for dissolving thrombus. The ultrasonic core generates an acoustic field which greatly accelerates lytic dispersion by driving the drug deeper into the clot and unwinding the fibrin to expose plasminogen receptor sites. 

Acoustic Pulse Thrombolysis™

  • Speeds time-to-clot dissolution.
  • Results in quality clinical outcomes.
  • Increases clot removal and enhances clinical improvement compared to either standard catheter-directed drug therapy or thrombectomy.1,2
  • Requires significantly shorter treatment times compared to standard CDT.3

Targets the Thrombus Safely

  • Lowers the risk of bleeding and other complications.14,1
  • Dissolves clots without damaging vessels, valves or walls.9

More Effective Drug Delivery

  • Reduces dosage requirements by as much as 68% compared to standard, catheter-directed drug therapy.1
  • Requires up to 4x less drug dosage than traditional systemic delivery.4,5
  • Reduces RV/LV ratio with as little as 8mg total tPA used in combination with EKOS™ therapy.19

Superior Clot Clearance3,7

  • 48% greater drug absorption within 1 hour.16
  • 84% greater drug absorption within 2 hours. 16
