Cerus Endovascular Receives CE Mark Approval for its Contour Neurovascular System™

The Contour Neurovascular System™ is used for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The Contour Neurovascular System™ is a unique, fine mesh braid that is deployed across the neck of the aneurysm sac and provides a combination of flow diversion and flow disruption through a single device implant. Commercial sales, via a controlled market release across the European Union (EU), are expected to begin during the second quarter of 2020.

CE Mark approval was based on data generated from the company’s two EU studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of the Contour Neurovascular System™, focusing on unruptured intracranial aneurysms. The latest, completed in 2019, was conducted at six sites in Germany, Austria, and Denmark, while the earlier study included four sites in the United Kingdom and Hungary. Data from the first study has been presented at a number of scientific conferences in early 2020, while data from the second, most recent study will be presented later this year.

“As our clinical data experience grows, and more physicians use the System, results continue to be compelling – providing additional confirmation that the Contour Neurovascular System™ delivers an important clinical option and represents a new, and potentially disruptive, standalone solution for the treatment of bifurcated saccular intracranial aneurysms compared to currently available technologies,” stated Dr. Stephen Griffin, President of Cerus Endovascular. “Importantly, physicians who have used the System have highlighted the benefits inherent in its unique simplicity, including a simple sizing approach of the device to the aneurysm width, ease of deliverability and controlled deployment.”

“Congratulations go out to the entire company, including our new management team, who were instrumental in pushing these studies forward, leading to our first regulatory approval and the achievement of a number of other, as yet unannounced, key milestones,” stated Dr. Sam Milstein, Chairman of Cerus Endovascular. “CE Mark approval, a critical step in our go-to-market strategy, has propelled us from the research and development stage to a  commercial-stage company, and we are eager to begin this next phase by making the Contour Neurovascular System™ available to physicians and patients across the EU in a controlled roll-out.”
