The Thrombus Extractor Capturer is designed for the removal of thrombus when connected to one of the syringes included in the system. It has a rapid exchange design (RX) with a single proximal lumen and a double distal lumen. The catheter is compatible with 0.014”/ 0.36 mm guidewires.

Catheter’s shaft displays a configuration of proximal single lumen and distal double lumen:

  • The proximal single lumen is reinforced with internal braided wire in order to provide pushability to the system.
  • The distal double lumen is also braided and is flexible to provide trackability. It has two functions:
    • Passage lumen for the guidewire.
    • Extraction lumen with direct connection to the proximal lumen.

The extraction hole is located at the distal end showing a beveled shape. The catheter ends in an atraumatic, rounded tip specially designed to avoid damages in the arteries.

The thrombus extraction catheter incorporates a stiffening mandrel (stylet). The use of this mandrel is optional and its purpose is to prevent the catheter from kinking during its advancement towards the treatment area

Capturer is provided with two radiopaque markers. The furthest one is located at the tip while the second marker is located 15 mm more proximally and helps to measure the length of the lesion.

The proximal shaft has an outer diameter of 1.4 mm and its proximal end incorporates a standard luer connector to facilitate attachment to the extension line and to the thrombus extraction syringe.

The distal part has a maximum outer diameter of 1.6 mm. The whole system is compatible with 6F guiding catheters (minimal inner diameter 0.070” / 1.78 mm). Catheter’s distal end is coated with a durable hydrophilic solution (HYDRAX PLUS), which minimizes friction and improves catheter’s trackability.

Two extraction syringes, a stopcock, an extension line and two filter baskets to collect and deposit the clots removed from the patient are included.

The components of catheter are latex free.

The Capturer thrombus extraction catheter is especially indicated for the removal of fresh, soft emboli and thrombi from the coronary or peripheral vessels, with a minimum diameter of 2 mm.


  • Outstanding extraction capacity (cc/s)
  • Inner lumen surface specially designed to minimize friction and guarantee optimal extraction of the thrombus
  • PTFE internal surface ensures rapid removal of the thrombus through the extraction lumen
  • The tip shape assures aspiration power in all situations
  • Flat-wire braiding reduces kinking radius to cope with the most tortuous anatomy and increases pushability
  • Unlimited pushability without kinking using the optional stiffening mandrel
  • Hydrophilic durable coating, HYDRAX PLUS, on the external surface for optimal trackability
  • Polymeric radiopaque markers ensure precise positioning at all times


  • Compatibility: 6F / 7F guiding catheter, 0.014’’ guide wire
  • Radiopaque markers: 1 at the tip and 1 at 15 mm from the tip
  • Extraction area: 0.99 mm2 proximal and 0.89 mm2 distal/ 1.39 mm2 proximal and 1.20 mm2 distal
  • Aspiration capacity: for 6F = 1.70 cc/s; for 7F = 2.34 cc/s
  • Catheter useful length: 140 cm
  • Rapid exchange length: 17.5 cm
  • Entry profile: 0.021’’/ 0.025’’
  • Crossing profile 0.049’’/ 0.054’’
