The NICO Myriad® system consists of the console, handpieces and ancillary products. All NICO Myriad handpieces have a side mouth cutting and aspiration aperture located .6mm from the blunt end that allows for tissue removal without injury to adjacent critical structures.1 The NICO Myriad handpieces are available in 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19 gauges and a variety of lengths.
Additional FDA clearance was granted for Myriad in January 2017 for revised intended use. Revised intended use includes specific neurosurgical indications including diseases such as primary/secondary brain tumors, vascular abnormalities/malformations, and intraventricular tumors/cysts.
