Unique multi-curve active catheter for complex endovascular navigation

Descripción del proyecto

Un catéter activo innovador para intervenciones intravasculares

Las intervenciones intravasculares consisten en atravesar el sistema vascular tras la introducción de un catéter por una arteria de la pierna o el brazo de un paciente y guiarlo hasta la zona a tratar. Las tecnologías actuales emplean catéteres pasivos que se introducen con guías flexibles, lo que conlleva problemas de rendimiento en casos de anatomías vasculares complejas. La empresa francesa Basecamp Vascular está desarrollado un producto sanitario innovador: un catéter guía activo y ajustable que puede adaptarse a las variaciones anatómicas individuales de cada paciente. Ya se ha desarrollado la primera versión de este producto para su aprobación normativa y clínica para su comercialización ulterior. El objetivo del proyecto MULTICURVE, financiado con fondos europeos, es respaldar la optimización de la estrategia comercial para el acceso al mercado.

Objetivo

While endovascular procedures have grown very quickly in the past years, notably for the treatment of neurovascular pathologies, they may be impossible to implement when navigation is complicated by high vessels tortuosities or bifurcations angulations. In such cases, medical practitioners have no choice but to use alternative techniques, often complex and costly.

Basecamp Vascular (BCV), a French SME created in 2016, is focused on the development and commercialisation of a breakthrough medical device: the first ever mechatronic active catheter dedicated to endovascular navigation in any anatomy, even complex, for neurovascular pathologies. BCV aims at providing the world market of endovascular procedures, specifically the “endovascular access” segment (+/- 8 million procedures / year, €5 billion in value), with this device, which tip can be modified on-demand as opposed to current passive catheters which preformed curve is unchangeable. First commercialisation is planned by 2019, with a first focus on the EU area, to be addressed globally as soon as the EC marking is obtained.

A first version (mono-curve) of BCV active catheter has been developed and validated and the upgraded version of the device (multi-curve) is currently in development and will be achieved by the end of 2017. In this frame, the MULTICURVE SME Instrument project aims at optimally preparing future innovation steps, with three specific objectives for phase 1: refining the current market strategy, preparing regulatory markings and preparing the planned multicentric, transnational clinical study to be performed in phase 2.

As such, the SME Instrument support will facilitate reaching the market of endovascular procedures, the multi-curve device being an unprecedented solution for medical practitioners. Indeed, for the first time, they should benefit from a catheter able to adjust to all patients’ individual anatomical variations, thus fully fitting within the personalised medicine concept.
