Revolutionizing the Treatment of Heart Failure with First-in-class Structural Heart Devices
Corvia Medical, Inc., previously DC Devices, Inc., is dedicated to revolutionizing the treatment of heart failure with first-in-class structural heart devices. The company has developed the world’s first transcatheter device designed to treat diastolic heart failure (DHF), also known as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). The InterAtrial Shunt Device (IASD), also known as the Corvia™ Atrial Decompression System, is the world’s first transcatheter device approved in the European Union to treat HFpEF. By facilitating continuous and dynamic decompression of the left atrium, the IASD aims to improve heart failure symptoms and quality of life, decrease heart failure hospitalization rates, and reduce the overall cost burden of managing heart failure patients.
