PTA is treatment of choice for vascular obstructive disease in the legs. Crucial for such limb saving procedure is getting reliable access — Femoral Access — to the obstructed blood vessels. No Femoral Access > no PTA > no limb salvage.
In contrast to PTA, Femoral Access is still performed with 40-year-old, non-dedicated devices. Consequently, such access is fraught by technical challenges, complications and a long learning curve.
We are looking forward to upcoming announcements and hope that the funding will enable the entrepreneurs to enhance their impact-driven businesses.
