From Joe Burnett, President & CEO:

The last 6 months have been difficult for so many families and businesses around the world. Here at ClearPoint Neuro, we remain steadfast in our mission to support the Neurosurgical community and your patients, now that elective procedures are beginning to approach pre-Pandemic levels. Since our clinical specialist team are essential hospital personnel, we remain dedicated to supporting cases through the COVID crisis. Over the summer we continued to invest in our future by growing our innovation team. I am delighted to introduce our new Biologics and Drug Delivery team members. We assembled these industry experts to offer turn-key device solutions for both pharmaceutical companies and academic partners working in the pre-clinical, clinical and post-approval development of gene and stem cell therapies to the brain. Our goal is to end 2020 stronger than it started. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions about our progress. On behalf of the entire ClearPoint team, thank you for allowing us to continue to serve your patients.

Introducing the New 5 & 7 French Peel-Away Sheath Kits

ClearPoint Neuro has received FDA clearance and is now launching the 5 and 7 French Peel-Away Sheath Kits. These kits allow the user to insert 5F or 7F devices to a pre-confirmed target in a single pass. The two new Peel-Away Sheath Kit sizes are made of the same materials and design as our original Accessory Kit, and have the identical intended use. Dr. Richardson of Massachusetts General Hospital shared his thoughts after evaluating the 5F Peel-Away Sheath Kit:

“I’ve used the new Peel-Away Sheath to help guide a laser catheter and am very happy that we now have this extra degree of confidence that catheter placement will be just as accurate as DBS placement. It’s especially helpful if a hippocampal trajectory requires going through the ventricle.”

Dr. Grewal of Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville highlighted some key benefits after evaluating the new 7F Peel-Away Sheath Kit:

“This new larger Stylet and Sheath Delivery System is very helpful for those cases where you’re worried about deflection, traversing near ventricles, or facing a steep trajectory. The stiffness provides a lot of confidence, and it is reassuring knowing that you don’t give up your track once you get to target. It’s just one pass.”
