Vena Medical is creating an infrared technology to bring endoscopy to the final frontier; patient vasculature.
Its technology maximizes the distance that light travels through blood, giving physicians a first-person navigational perspective from the point of view of their tools.
The technology will first be deployed to expedite complex intravascular navigation in interventional procedures. When 2D fluoroscopy is no longer sufficient, our imaging guidewire will allow physicians to identify and cannulate tough-to-get-at blood vessels. This will reduce costs by minimizing delays, limit radiation exposure for both patients and physicians and increase patient throughput by keeping catheterization labs running on time.
