GDC® Detachable Coils, GDC 360 Detachable Coils, and Matrix Detachable Coils

MRI Safety (Neurovascular Use)

Non-clinical testing and analysis have demonstrated that when used in the neurovasculture, Stryker Detachable Coils are MR Conditional. A patient with Stryker Detachable Coils can be safely scanned immediately after placement of the coils, under the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 1.5 or 3.0 Tesla
  • Spatial gradient field up to 2500 Gauss/cm (25 Tesla/m)
  • Normal operational mode for gradients and SAR (maximum whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of lower than 2.0 W/kg and maximum head SAR of lower than 3.2 W/kg) for a total active MR scan time (with RF exposure) of 15 minutes or less per scan sequence.

In an analysis based on the temperature rises in non-clinical testing of spherical aneurysm models, the Detachable Coils were determined to produce an in-vivo temperature rise of 4oC or less for 15 minutes of MR scanning in normal mode operation in 1.5 T and 3 T MR systems. The Detachable Coils should not migrate in this MRI environment.

Temperature testing was not conducted in arteriovenous malformations or fistulae models. MR image quality may be compromised if the area of interest is in the same area or relatively close to the position of the device. Therefore, it may be necessary to optomize MR imagining parameters for the presence of this implant.

GDC Detachable Coils, GDC 360 Detachable Coils, and Matrix2 Detachable Coils

MRI Safety (Peripheral Use)

Non-clinical testing and analysis have demonstrated that when used in peripheral vasculature Stryker Detachable Coils are MR Conditional. A patient can be safely scanned immediately after placement of the coils, under the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla
  • Spatial gradient field up to 2500 Gauss/cm (25 Tesla/m)
  • Normal operational mode for gradients and SAR (maximum whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of lower than 2.0 W/kg and maximum head SAR of lower than 3.2 W/kg) for a total of active MR scan time (with RF exposure) of 15 minutes or less per scan sequence.

In an analysis based on the temperature rises in non-clinical testing of a bundle of 30 test coils with a length of 109mm and the calculated SAR in the patient during MR scan, the test coils were determined to produce an in-vivo temperature rise of 7.4oC or lower for 15 minutes of MR scanning in normal operational mode in 1.5 T and 3 T MR systems. The Detachable Coils should not migrate in this MRI environment. The SAR limit of 2 W/kg applies only for coil placement in the torso. A reduction of SAR limits may be appropriate for coil placement in the legs or arms.

MR image quality may be compromised if the area if interest is in the same area or relatively close to the position of the device. Therefore, it may be necessary to optimize MR imaging parameters for the presence of this implant.

Neuroform® Microdelivery Stent System, Neuroform EZ® Stent System

MRI Safety

Non-clinical testing and analysis have demonstrated that Neuroform Stent is MR Conditional alone, or when overlapped with a second stent, and adjacent to a Stryker Neurovascular coil mass. A patient with Neuroform Stent can be safely scanned immediately after placement of this implant, under the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla
  • Spatial gradient field up to 2500 Gauss/cm (25 Tesla/m)
  • Normal operational mode for gradients and SAR (maximum whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of lower than 2.0 W/kg and maximum head SAR of lower than 3.2 W/kg) for a total active MR scan time (with RF exposure) of 15 minutes or less per scan sequence.

In an analysis based on the temperature rises in non-clinical testing of stents and the calculated SAR in the patient during an MR scan, Neuroform Stents were determined to product an in-vivo temperature rise of 4.0oC or lower for 15 minutes of MR scanning in normal operational mode in 1.5 T and 3 T MR systems. The Neuroform Stent should not migrate in this MRI environment.

MR image quality may be compromised if the area of interest is in the same area or relatively close to the position of the device.

In Spin Echo and Gradient Echo sequence evaluations Neuroform stent image artifact extended approximately 2mm from the device. Lumen of the stent was partially obscured by the artifact. Therefore, it may be necessary to optimize MR imaging parameters for the presence of this implant.

Wingspan® Stent System

MRI Safety

Non-clinical testing and analysis has demonstrated that the Wingspan® Stent is MR Conditional alone, or when overlapped with a second stent. A patient with this device can be safely scanned immediately after placement of this implant, in an MR system meeting the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of  1.5T and 3.0T only 
  • Maximum spatial gradient magnetic field of 2,500 gauss/cm (25 T/m) or less
  • Maximum MR system reported, whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 2 W/kg (Normal Operating Mode) and head averaged SAR of 3.2 W/kg

Under the scan conditions defined above, the Wingspan Stent is expected to produce a maximum temperature rise of 4ºC after 15 minutes of continuous scanning.  

In non-clinical testing, the image artifact caused by the device extends up to 2 mm from the Wingspan stent when imaged with a spin echo pulse sequence and a 3 Tesla MRI system.  The artifact may obscure the device lumen.

Target® Detachable Coils

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Safety Information (Neurovascular Use)

Non-clinical testing and analysis have demonstrated the Target Detachable Coils are MR Conditional. A patient with this device can be safely scanned immediately after placement of the coils in an MR system meeting the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 3.0 T or less
  • Maximum spatial gradient magnetic field of 2500 gauss/cm (25 T/m)
  • Maximum MR system reported, head specific absorption rate (SAR) < 3.2 W/kg and whole body averaged SAR < 2 W/kg (Normal operating mode)

Under the scan conditions defined above, the Target Detachable Coils are expected to produce a maximum temperature rise of less than or equal to 4ºC after 15 minutes of continuous scanning.

In non-clinical testing, the image artifact caused by the device extends approximately 12 mm from the Target Detachable Coils when imaged with a gradient echo pulse sequence and a 3.0 T MRI system.

Target Detachable Coils are made from non-magnetic platinum-tungsten alloy and should not migrate in the magnetic field. The health state of the patient or the presence of other implants may require reduction of the MRI limits.
