Lazarus Effect Device?

I've been reading about a new thrombectomy device in the middle stages of becoming a treatment for ischemic strokies. This ReCover device works by "capturing" clots in the part of your bod it affects.

Let's think about this for a minute and collectively whoa. What could this mean for folks on blood thinners? Does this mean that if ReCover gets the clot that strokies won't have to be on blood thinners? Or maybe it will reduce the time of having to be on the evil things...lots to think about! Of course the afflicted area would need to heal but wow! This is pretty big!

Currently this Lazarus Effect plans to launch the Lazarus ReCover in Europe in 2013. How exciting!
