Oxford Endovascular

Oxford Endovascular (OE) was spun out of Oxford University’s Engineering Science and Surgical Science Departments in December 2015 to commercialise OxiFlow™, a novel blood flow diversion device (‘stent’) for treating Intracranial Aneurysms (ICAs).

A weakened point in a blood vessel, aneurysms occur where pulsing blood pressure causes the vessel wall to balloon. ICAs, if untreated, can rupture causing bleeding into the brain which can lead to irreparable brain damage and death. OxiFlow™ is a tiny mesh tube that fits the natural shape of the blood vessel in the brain and inserted via a microcatheter, it diverts blood away from the ICA, allowing it to heal.
