AngioDynamics Announces Presentation of Positive Safety, Efficacy Results from RAPID Outcomes Database
Represents Largest Catheter Based Thromboaspiration Study Completed to Date
The registry was designed to evaluate the patterns of use, safety and efficacy of the AngioVac System in the bulk removal of undesirable intravascular material. The registry enrolled 234 patients across 21 sites, surpassing its 200-patient enrollment goal. Among enrolled patients, 48.3% had a mass in the right heart, 35.9% had caval thromboemboli, 8.5 % had catheter related thrombi, 1.7% had a pulmonary embolism** and 5.6% had a combination of the above.
“RAPID represents the largest catheter based thromboaspiration study completed to date, and we are pleased to share its positive findings,” said
Findings from the RAPID Registry have been accepted for publication in the
The primary objective of the registry was to capture data on the use of the AngioVac System for various anatomic locations. Greater than 70% of clot/mass removal was achieved in a majority of the patient population. Overall, the study confirmed the AngioVac System to be versatile, safe and effective for the removal of vascular thrombi and cardiac masses across a broad range of patient populations.
“Our goal threshold was to remove over 70% of the clot, which we felt was clinically relevant, and each of the three main groups—the caval group, the right heart group, and the catheter associated clot group—were associated with very high rates of clot removal,” commented
