Aspiration + Maceration + Transportation
*6F and 8F catheters are the only sizes indicated for arteriovenous fistulas and arteriovenous grafts.
Internal helix rotates at 40,000 – 60,000 rpm creating powerful suction at the catheter tip, aspirating clot through wall-apposed side window(s)**
Clot is macerated by the internal helix as it enters the catheter, and is continuously macerated as it travels through the catheter to help mitigate clogging
Internal helix helps transport clot through the catheter, out of the vessel
