IRRAS partners with Aarhus University Hospital to advance use of IRRAflow in neurosurgery
6 April 2021 -

Medical technology company IRRAS on Monday signed a strategic collaboration with Aarhus University Hospital (AAUH) in Aarhus, Denmark, will initial focus on the use of the IRRAflow system to treat patients suffering from intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH).

Dr Anders Korshøj, the associate professor of Neurosurgery at Aarhus University Hospital, will lead a team of specialists from the hospital's neurocritical care team and data analytics experts from The Aarhus University Center for Digitalization, Big Data and Data Analytics.

IRRAflow is the world's first irrigating intracranial drain and its unique mechanism of action addresses the complications associated with the current methods of managing intracranial fluid by using a dual-lumen catheter that combines automated irrigation, controlled drainage, and continuous monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP), all within one system, added IRRAS.

The use of IRRAS's IRRAflow in the treatment of IVH will be prospectively compared to the use of traditional drainage treatments in the pending ACTIVE clinical study. Beyond this study, other clinical and product development projects are being planned.

Aarhus University Hospital, an 854-bed academic teaching hospital, was named Denmark's best hospital for the 13th consecutive year by healthcare newspaper Dagens Medicin in 2020 as well as ranked as 11th best hospital in the world by American publication, Newsweek.
