Reverse Medical Receives Patent For MicroVascular Plug
IRVINE, Calif.--Reverse Medical Corporation
announced today that the United States Patent Office has notified the Company that a new patent has issued entitled “Embolic Implant and Method of Use”. This new patent allows twenty-two claims associated with the Company’s Micro Vascular Plug (“MVP”) technology platform.
The Reverse Medical MVP is a proprietary technology designed specifically for vascular embolization. A number of clinical applications require occlusion of the vasculature to rapidly, effectively and safely provide blood flow cessation, including presentations of trauma, hemorrhage, tumor and vascular malformation isolations. Physicians have traditionally used embolic coils for vascular embolization, often requiring numerous costly implants, extensive endovascular lab time and considerable fluoroscopic radiation exposure to both the patient and the treating medical staff. The Reverse Medical MVP represents a breakthrough technology that rapidly occludes target blood vessels, most often with only one single implant. Furthermore, the MVP is uniquely deliverable through traditional microcatheters, allowing the physician to super-selectively perform rapid vascular embolization at the target vessel location. The MVP technology platform will be offered in a variety of sizes to treat all areas of the body’s peripheral vasculature.
This newly issued patent builds upon Reverse’s intellectual property portfolio, which now includes six issued patents and thirteen additional pending patent applications worldwide. Commenting on this new patent, Reverse Medical Chief Technology Officer Brian Strauss said, “This patent solidifies our intellectual property foundation of unique means for performing endovascular embolization and, along with our other issued patents and pending applications, provides us with broad protection for our innovative portfolio of devices for treating a variety of Neuro and Peripheral vascular conditions.”
Reverse Medical Corporation is a privately held medical device company focused on expanding a technology driven pipeline of innovative, state-of-the-art endovascular treatments for a broad spectrum of peripheral and neurovascular disorders and diseases. The company is based in Irvine, California.
