1. A clot capture system, comprising:
a tubular body comprising a first end and a second end, the first end having an opening,
wherein the tubular body is transformable to a first expanded configuration in which the first end is expanded, wherein the second end is compressed in the first expanded configuration, wherein the tubular body is folded between the first end and the second end such that a compressed portion of the tubular body is within an expanded portion of the tubular body, wherein the tubular body has a first expanded axial length in the first expanded configuration and a first width along a majority of the first axial length in the first expanded configuration, and
wherein the tubular body is transformable to a second expanded configuration in which the tubular body has a second expanded axial length greater than the first expanded axial length and a second width along a majority of the second axial length substantially the same as the first width.
