MicroPort® NeuroTech Donates WILLIS® to an Injured in Jiuzhaigou Earthquake


Mianyang, China – MicroPort NeuroTech (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. ("MicroPort® NeuroTech") recently donated a WILLIS® Intracranial Stent Graft System ("WILLIS®") to a patient injured in the Jiuzhaigou earthquake, which helped save his life with the professional treatment of the medical team of Mianyang Central Hospital and West China Hospital of Sichuan University.
At 9:19 pm on August 8, 2017, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck a remote, mountainous part in Jiuzhaigou County, Sichuan Province, with the epicenter monitored at 33.2 degrees north, 103.82 degrees east. After the earthquake, Mianyang Central Hospital rapidly organized relief work and rescue 47 injured. One of the injured is a 36-year-old male who suffered from Intracranial vascular rupture caused by trauma. After group consultation of Director Qiyu Liu of Mianyang Central Hospital and his team under the direction of Professor Xiaodong Xie of West China Hospital of Sichuan University, the experts chose to use WILLIS® for endovascular graft exclusion of internal carotid.
After learning the situation from Director Qiyu Liu, MicroPort® NeuroTech decided to donate a WILLIS® to the patient. The operation was performed by Professr Xiaodong Xie and the medical team of Mianyang Central Hospital. After the operation, the patient’s intracranial vascular was repaired and he was discharged with a good prognosis after receiving perioperative treatment and care.
Researched and developed independently by MicroPort® NeuroTech, WILLIS® gained approval from China Food and Drug Administration ("CFDA") in 2013. It is the first stent graft system indicated for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms that has gained market approval in China. It is also the first medical device to achieve complete vascular reconstruction in China. WILLIS® is also easy to operate. In the above-mentioned case, WILLIS® achieves excellent treatment efficacy by immediate occlusion of the injured blood vessel.
As a company with a strong sense of social responsibility, MicroPort® NeuroTech often participates in donation activities to give back to the society. MicroPort® NeuroTech hopes to work together with more experts who are also enthusiastic about public welfare to provide better medical devices and service to patients, bringing them hope of new life.
