St. Mary's Medical Center Becomes the First Hospital in Florida to Use the FreeClimb™ 70 Reperfusion System Powered by Tenzing®

Jun 8, 2023

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – St. Mary's Medical Center is the first hospital in Florida to use the innovative FreeClimb 70 reperfusion system powered by Tenzing from Route 92 Medical.

Designed for superior deliverability and increased efficiency, the FreeClimb 70 system combines the advanced technology of the FreeClimb 70 catheter and the Tenzing 7 delivery catheter. The FreeClimb 70 system delivers a refined aspiration technique enabling physicians to provide fast, effective treatment to stroke patients, potentially saving lives, and reducing the risk of long-term disability.

Dr. Ali Malek, Medical Director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Mary’s Medical Center, was the Neurointerventionalist who successfully treated the first Florida patient using the FreeClimb 70 system. “In the battle against stroke every new tool we gain access to gives us the chance to improve the quality of life for more patients,” Dr. Malek said.

With the addition of the FreeClimb 70 reperfusion system to its arsenal of advanced medical tools, St. Mary's Medical Center demonstrates a continued commitment to providing cutting-edge care to residents of the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast communities.

St. Mary’s is both a Joint Commission and DNV Healthcare Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center, each of which is the highest designation for a Stroke Center.
