Novel Catheter for the Diagnosis of Cardiovascular Disease

Descrizione del progetto

Innovazione nella diagnosi delle malattie cardiovascolari

Le malattie cardiovascolari sono responsabili di 1,9 milioni di decessi ogni anno nell’UE, rappresentando una delle cause più frequenti di morte. Il progetto Wirecath, finanziato dall’UE, intende finanziare, convalidare clinicamente e fornire un dispositivo medico innovativo per la diagnosi delle malattie del miocardio e dei restringimenti delle arterie coronarie. Questa tecnologia offre un’elevata precisione, una migliore efficienza dei costi e una maggiore manovrabilità. Si fonda su una solida base non complessa che utilizza un nuovo posizionamento dei sensori di pressione, riducendo il rischio di errori idrostatici che di solito porterebbero a una diagnosi erronea dell’intensità della malattia.

Obiettivo

Cavis Technologies has an objective to clinically validate and commercialise Wirecath – its novel medical device for assessing severity of narrowings in the coronary arteries and myocardial disease. It has the potential to substantially reduce management costs in cardiovascular disease by improving its diagnosis, and thus, increasing opportunity for timely prevention of disease progression and its severe complications, such as angina, shortness of breath and heart attack.
Wirecath has several premium features over competing solutions. These are an unique high accuracy, superior manoeuvrability and cost-effectiveness. Its simple and robust design bases on a unique position of pressure sensor and resistance to hydrostatic error, that standard pressure wires are liable to. Given that hydrostatic error often leads to misdiagnosis of the coronary artery disease severity, Wirecath optimises diagnostic accuracy and offers long-lasting benefits to patients, cardiologists and healthcare providers.
The unique accuracy allow new methods to be developed, applicable to another large patient group that has non-obstructive CAD, with no good diagnosis tools available today.
With this project, Cavis intends to support 2019’s commercial launch of Wirecath and plan further product development and large-scale clinical
evaluation studies that will follow the first-in-man study planned for 2019. Cavis’ current research and development activities are supported by
investment from shareholders and numerous innovation grants. Cavis plans to apply for SME Instrument Phase 2 funding to perform clinical studies that will build trust in its unique features and increase its commercial value.
With 1.9 million deaths a year, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the EU and place a considerable burden on healthcare
systems and government budgets. Prevention and treatment of various cardiovascular diseases, is of a high strategic priority.
