2022-10-13 08:30:00

Stockholm, October 13, 2022 - IRRAS, a commercial-stage medical technology company with a comprehensive portfolio of innovative products for neurocritical care, today announced it will be exhibiting at EANS 2022, the 22nd European Congress of Neurosurgery, hosted by the European Association of Neurological Societies. After two consecutive years in which the Congress was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the EANS Annual Congress is again being held in person in Belgrade, Serbia, on 16 to 20 October 2022. Attendees of EANS 2022 are encouraged to learn more about IRRAS' products, including its IRRAflow Active Fluid Exchange system, by visiting IRRAS' booth #10.

In addition to exhibiting its products for conference participants, clinical data regarding the use of the IRRAflow system to treat intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) will be presented in a case series poster by Dr. Behnam Rezai Jahromi, a neurosurgeon from Helsinki University Hospital. The poster presentation, titled "Active CSF Exchange System for IVH Treatment," will be available for review, in-person and virtually, for registered participants of EANS.

"My experience utilizing IRRAflow has shown impressive results in clearing out toxic blood in ventricles after patients have experienced ruptured aneurysms and the associated intracranial hemorrhage," said Dr. Rezai Jahromi. "The combination of the IRRAflow system's recurring irrigation, when combined with thrombolytic medication, can change the composition of cerebrospinal fluid, accelerate the ability to remove the toxic materials, and improve the clinical outcomes of these critically ill patients."  

Dr. Rezai Jahromi will also lead an educational session on Tuesday, October 18th, at 1000 CET within the IRRAS booth. During the session, Dr. Rezai Jahromi will present his clinical experience utilizing IRRAflow to treat IVH patients and will also provide an update on the ARCH (Active Removal of Intracerebral Hematoma via active irrigation of ventricular system) clinical trial.
