Codman Neuro, part of the DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, has introduced Codman Enterprise 2 vascular reconstruction device in Europe.

The Codman Enterprise 2 is the self-expanding stent and delivery system, which has been designed to treat wide-necked intracranial aneurysms and maintain the position of endovascular coils.

DePuy Synthes Spine and Codman Neuro EMEA marketing director Christoph Eigenmann said: "At Codman Neuro, we recognize the critical need for neurovascular products that more effectively target wide-neck aneurysms.

"We have made important design improvements to the Codman Enterprise 2 System so that it better fits vascular anatomy, is more visible on X-Ray, and is more easily deployed."

The system is said to improve vessel wall conformability in tortuous anatomy and maintain its ability to provide a stable structure at the neck of an aneurysm, allowing in placing of coils safely and maintain blood flow through the artery.

According to DePuy Synthes, the system is intended to be used with occlusive devices in the treatment of intracranial aneurysms.

DePuy Synthes Companies provides orthopaedic and neurological solutions, including the specialties of joint reconstruction, trauma, neurological, craniomaxillofacial, spinal surgery and sports medicine.
