Subdural and Intraparenchymal Hematoma Evacuation System

Description:

A team of mechanical engineers at the University of Colorado, led by neurosurgeons Dr. Zach Folzenlogen and Dr. Joshua Seinfeld, have developed a novel cranial port and drainage kit for use in the treatment of Intracerebral hemorrhage and other pathologies including intraventricular hemorrhage, cerebral abscess, and subdural hemorrhage. This platform technology can be placed intracranially at the bedside by a neurointensivist, reducing overall costs by obviating the need to secure operating room time and resources for port placement. The kit includes a number of inner cannulas to enable a variety of treatment options such as aspiration/irrigation, evacuation, and potentially thrombolysis of fluid, as well as neuronavigation software to calculate the device setting for catheter placement.
