We will revolutionise the medical field by replacing expensive, invasive and high-risk open-heart surgery, with “keyhole” minimally invasive surgery (MIS) to treat coronary artery disease (CAD). Our ELANA® technology enables reproducible coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery
without the need of heart arrest and suturing, thus avoiding the need to open the patient’s chest. This is realised with an innovative clip which circumvents the need of suturing of blood vessels altogether. By realising closed-chest CABG, ELANA® reduces not only the risks associated with
traditional CABG, such as bleeding, stroke and wound infection, but also significantly shortens recovery times. As a result, ELANA® will reduce direct healthcare costs of CABG procedures by over 50%. To critically de-risk our technological development and accelerate market entry to 2025, AMT
Medical seeks a total of €7.5M funding (€2.5M grant, €5M equity) to finalise clinical validation and gain market approval.
