A NON-INVASIVE MEDICAL DEVICE TO TREAT AORTIC STENOSIS WITH ULTRASOUNDS
To treat Aortic Stenosis, Cardiawave has developed a non-invasive, real-time image-guided medical device using a cutting-edge ultrasound technology, known as Pulsed Cavitational Ultrasound Therapy (PCUT).
Our non-invasive therapy consists in repairing the aortic valve, not replacing it. No surgery is required. Our unique approach could represent both an alternative and a complementary approach to current surgical interventions.
Our Valvopulse device delivers focused high-intensity ultrasounds with millimetric precision to perform a remote and reparative effect on the aortic valve leaflets. The energy is mechanical (bubbles cavitation), non-thermal. Aortic valve leaflets tissues are softened, restoring their mobility and enabling the aortic valve to open widely again immediately during the procedure.
AN UNDERLYING DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY
The disruptive and patented technology developed by Cardiawave is unique and offers several advantages over state-of-the-art. It allows physicians to deliver with a non-invasive medical device mechanical energy on a moving target with high precision, while at the same time preserving the tissue and organs through which the ultrasound passes. Unlike any existing technology, it is possible to target and treat, almost simultaneously, several anatomical zones spread over a large area without physically moving the medical device, which is placed on the patient’s chest, over the beating heart. Treatment is monitored in real time.
