Q’Apel Medical Inc. Achieves Major Milestone with European Regulatory Approval for Walrus Balloon Guide Catheter

Q’Apel Medical Inc. has revolutionized the treatment of acute ischemic stroke with the Walrus Balloon Guide Catheter (BGC). Since 2019, the Walrus BGC has been the U.S. market-leading device for Neuro Interventional physicians, and has been used to successfully treat over 20,000 patients. Recently, Q’Apel was granted the CE Mark under MDR to make their revolutionary device available to a wider international audience.
