Stryker has refined a revolutionary new stroke treatment therapy, aspiration thrombectomy.
As one of the leading med-tech companies in interventional neuroradiology, Stryker has refined a revolutionary new stroke treatment therapy, aspiration thrombectomy, in which the surgeon inserts a micro-catheter into the femoral artery and threads it through the vasculature into the brain. Vacuum technology is then used to remove the blood clot causing the stroke/blockage.

It is a textbook example of a partnership with a major medical-technology firm that needs vacuum solutions for its applications.
