What is the webinar about?

The webinar will describe eCLIPs functional features, beginning with coil retention and flow diversion by illustration of a diverse series of cases from Birmingham, UK. Techniques for appropriate device delivery and both radial and longitudinal orientation will be described. Limited clinical follow up will be presented. A description of procedural and early outcome results will be presented for the prospective clinical trial of eCLIPs for basilar and carotid terminus anatomies in the French HAS-funded trial.

Key message

The most recent iteration of eCLIPs has broad application in de novo and recurrent WNBAs and is easier to use and has better procedural outcomes than the original version.

Learning objectives

  • Aneurysm selection for eCLIPs use.
  • How to deploy eCLIPs satisfactorily: importance of neck coverage.
  • Procedural outcomes of eCLIPs implantation
  • Intermediate safety and efficacy outcomes after eCLIPs implantation.

About the speakers & moderator

Dr. Waleed Butt

Dr. Waleed Butt is a Consultant Interventional Neuroradiologist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom. He has a broad experience in aneurysm treatment with coils, stents, flow diverters and intrasaccular devices. He has contributed to novel device registries and is an early career researcher in the field of intracranial aneurysms and stroke. He has acted as a principal investigator for a randomised controlled trial investigating balloon guide catheter use in mechanical thrombectomy.

More recently, he has taken an interest in bifurcation aneurysms and the management of their recurrences. He has performed the largest series of eCLIPs in the United Kingdom and hopes to share his initial experience with the neurointerventional community.

Dr. Raphael Blanc

Dr. Raphaël Blanc is an interventional and diagnostic radiologist and deputy head since 2010 of the department of interventional neuroradiology (Director Dr Piotin) at Rothschild Foundation Hospital in Paris. He received his MD, MSc degrees from Paris University in 2003.

His work and research interests include: Embolisation of Cerebral and medullary vascular pathologies: Aneurysms, AVM, Stroke, dural fistulas, Tumor embolization as well as diagnostic Neuroradiology. He is involved in the development, design and conception, preclinical/clinical research and regulatory aspects for new endovascular medical devices. He has been co Principal Investigator for many medical devices studies, including the EESIS-Fr trial, a French HAS-sponsored trial investigating safety and efficacy of eCLIPs treatment of basilar and carotid terminus aneurysms.

He has co-founded BCV Systems a clinical stage Medtech start-up developing an endovascular robotic guidewire (FIH realized in July 2022). He is co-founder and board member of ETIS, the French National Registry of Mechanical thrombectomy for large vessel occlusion (Direction Dr Lapergue). He is involved in a french national consortium on acute ischemic stroke: RHU Booster (Direction Pr. Mazighi)
