Setting a New Standard


With its unique combination of deflectability and stability, COURIER Enzo sets a new standard for microcatheters. Dial-In Stability Enzos active tip deflection allows better control of the desired stability to reduce kickback during embolization. This can help in challenging cases with acute turns and small or densely packed aneurysms in which catheter access is tenuous.

The Enzo tip remained stable inside an acutely angled 4 mm supraclinoid ICA aneurysm throughout the procedure.

Pre-coiling

Post-coiling

Pack. REDIRECT. Pack. The ability to deflect Enzos tip during the procedure can facilitate the redirection of embolics, allowing more control over the positioning and packing of coils, especially in large or multilobular aneurysms. This could eliminate the need to remove, reshape, and reposition the cathetersaving valuable procedure time.

Pre-coiling

Upper lobe coiled

Lower lobe coiled

The Enzo tip was redirected to coil the upper and lower lobes progressively in a complex upper basilar aneurysm.

1.8 F Distal OD: Helps navigate through stent cells.

Two Radiopaque Markers: Platinum radiopaque markers, 3 cm apart, enhance fluoroscopic visibility of the catheter tip.

Flexible and Stable Distal Shaft Segment: Micrus proprietary design and fabrication techniques result in superior tip shape retention and stability* to reduce kickback.

Exceptional Trackability. Preferred Outcomes.


COURIER Microcatheters feature the most pushable proximal shaft* a flexible distal , segment, and a patented hydrophilic coating that ensure excellent trackability to help you get thereand provide excellent stability within the lesion to help you stay there.

Shaft Construction: Multilayer shaft construction creates smooth transition zonesfrom a soft, lowprofile distal segment with enhanced resistance to ovalization to a supportive proximal end.

COURIER helped treat a giant 3 cm pericallosal artery aneurysm. It held a J-curve shape and was stable through a high degree of tortuosity.

90 cm Shaft Marker: Allows for expedited microcatheter insertion into a guiding catheter for reduced fluoroscopic use.

Proximal Shaft: Multiple slender stainless-steel ribbons crisscross to form a dense proximal braided section, providing better catheter pushability and control.*

The Revolutionary COURIER

Enzo

Microcatheter

Ergonomic Deflection Knob: Allows in vivo control of Enzos tip, deflectable up to 90 degrees (from straight) in opposing directions.

Visionary Innovation. Unmatched Performance.


COURIER Enzo brings a whole new level of functionality to neurovascular microcatheters. The secret lies in the unique actively deflectable tip that allows in vivo control of the tip shape via Enzos ergonomic hub. COURIER Enzos tip can be deflected up to 90 degrees (from straight) in opposing directions. This permits a greater level of control over catheter and embolic placement.

In this 4 mm posterior communicating artery aneurysm case, notice how sharply Enzo deflected into the large neck. It managed to steadily hold this tenuous access point throughout the treatment. Later, Enzo aided coiling, deflecting away from the dome.

Shape It. Get There. Stay There.
The unique design of COURIER Microcatheters delivers the ideal balance of form and function. The result is a rich set of features and an optimal blend of access and support that are particularly suited for distal accessbecause getting there is only half the challenge.

Endurance Technology Beyond Just Shape Retention


COURIER features our exclusive Endurance Technology, integrating all layers of the microcatheter into a well-balanced laminate. The result is amazing shapability and retention of the tip shape during even the most complex, lengthy procedures.

Shapability COURIERs superior shapability* allows you to match the anatomy one to one, reducing the need to overshape.

Courier EnzoTM Increases Packing Density

The Courier Enzo deflectable tip microcatheter can distribute coils within an aneurysm to achieve improved packing density. 3 INRs evaluated its performance in an in-vitro study under angiography. 10 silicone aneurysms, each 10mm in diameter, were coiled using Courier Enzo and a conventional competitive microcatheter (Product A). The end point was when the microcatheter was kicked out of the aneurysm. Enzo showed a statistically significant 9% increase in packing density as compared to Product A. Micrus Cerecyte Microcoils were used in both arms. Enzo consistently demonstrated higher packing density.

Courier Enzo allows better control of the microcatheter tip. This helps direct the coils and find empty spaces within the interstices of the coil mass, especially during the final stages of coiling.*

Redirecting Enzos tip resists catheter kickback

The Courier Enzo is designed to deflect. It provides stability by resisting being kicked out of the lesion. This can provide consistently higher packing density.

Better stability provides higher packing density

* Please refer to IFU for proper handling instructions.

Packing Density Can Affect Re-treatment Rates

Non-procedural re-rupture from the index aneurysm by degree of occlusion*

The CARAT study reported that the degree of aneurysm occlusion after the initial treatment is a strong predictor of the risk of subsequent rupture in patients presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage, which justifies attempts to completely occlude aneurysms.1
