Thrombectomy Catheter

SmartClaw is an adjunctive thrombectomy device that is atraumatic to the vessel wall, but robust enough to clear organized thrombus.


Strong enough for clot.
Gentle enough for vessel walls.

In DVT cases, the nitinol basket can be deployed distal to the thrombus, expanded circumferentially to fully conform to the vessel wall atraumatically, and pull the thrombus back to the catheter with its unique weave.


Intuitive. Simple. Easy to use.

SmartClaw is engineered with an adjustable thumb slider that intuitively expands and collapses the basket with tactile feedback, a reinforced catheter, and radiopaque marker band.
