eCLIPs is a non-tubular endovascular device currently targeted for use in challenging wide-neck bifurcations, but whose technology is designed to treat 95% of cerebral aneurysm cases. eCLIPs’ unique design provides not only coil retention, but also flow diversion at the neck. eCLIPs avoids dangerous entry into the dynamic, fragile environment of the aneurysm sac while leaving side branches unencumbered and providing a platform for endothelial growth across the bifurcation neck.
