Start-Up Spotlight: Innovative Cardiovascular Solutions Hopes To Win Regulatory Nod For Embolic Protector For TAVR
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is performed routinely using devices providing protection from stroke as standard of care. However, cerebral embolic protection devices currently available do not capture and remove emboli from all three vessels leading to the brain. The Emblok Embolic Protection System from Innovative Cardiovascular Solutions (ICS) has developed an embolic filter designed to protect all three cerebral vessels during TAVR and remove debris from the entire circulatory system.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement pioneer Martin Leon discussed what is coming down the pike for technologies in the TAVR and heart valve device space at the recent Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Diego. Here is a run-down of what he highlighted, including AI-driven technologies that promise to improve patient access and outcomes. This is the first of a two-part series focusing on innovations in interventional cardiology.
Venus Medtech, the Chinese transcatheter aortic valve technology specialist, has made its second international acquisition as it pursues its strategy for global expansion in the TAVR market.
Claret Medical’s Sentinel embolic protection device for transcatheter aortic valve replacement is set to go before US FDA’s Circulatory System Devices Panel on Feb. 23. Trials found the de novo device is safe, but the agency has some concerns that a primary efficacy endpoint was missed.
