VasoStitch is a medical device company that has developed access/closure technologies for the minimally invasive deployment of heart valves.
Existing methods of vascular access/closure were developed for cardiac stents. With no viable alternatives, cardiologists have attempted to use these in the much larger holes required for the minimally invasive implantation of heart valves. Vascular complications requiring a 2nd procedure occur 15-20% of the time adding expense, risk and pain for the patient. The VasoStitch solution successfully addresses these issues.
