Delray Medical Center Becomes First Hospital in Florida to Use New Technology for Stroke PatientsSep 4, 2021
Delray Beach, Florida – Delray Medical Center is the first hospital in the state of Florida to use the RED 62™ Reperfusion Catheter & BENCHMARK BMX96™ for stroke patients. Neurointerventionalist, Dr. Dennys Reyes, is the first doctor in the county to use this technology. The RED 62™ is designed to navigate complex distal vessel anatomy and deliver powerful aspiration along with the BENCHMARK BMX96™ to remove blood clots in acute ischemic stroke patients with large vessel occlusions. In addition, it provides faster navigation and shorter times to recanalize "brain vessels".
“The RED 62™ is engineered with some of the latest innovations in tracking and aspiration technology to address large vessel blockages from a stroke located in more challenging areas, while maximizing powerful aspiration to remove blood clots,” said Dr. Reyes. “With the help of the BENCHMARK BMX96™ Access System, hypotube technology provides a higher stability for more complex cases when it comes to treatment of a stroke. In addition, when performing a procedure, the catheter is designed to increase versatility and visualization designed to help offer patients the best possible outcomes.”
As a comprehensive stroke center, Delray Medical Center has advanced technology and services to help with any neurological issues. Our hospital is a member of the Advanced Neuroscience Network, and integrated delivery system of medical professionals and hospitals focused on offering a full continuum of neurological care throughout South Florida.
“This new technology gives patients who come to our hospital for stroke care the latest in neurologic care,” said Maggie Gill, chief executive officer of the Palm Beach Health Network & Delray Medical Center. “This hospital continues to be at the forefront when it comes to the newest medical care in our community, and the RED 62™ Reperfusion Catheter & BENCHMARK BMX96™ is no exception.”
