CardioPrecision Ltd, the global leader in transcervical access for the treatment of structural heart disease and cardiothoracic intervention, announces the issuance of its latest patent ‘New Method and System for Transcatheter Intervention’ from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
CardioPrecision Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Mr Fraser Sutherland, MD, commented: “ We are very excited about this US method patent relating to transcatheter interventions for mitral valve, a market estimated to reach $3Bn by 2022. The NEW Transcervical method and approach for transcatheter mitral valve replacement or repair (TMVR) interventions, which forms the basis of the claims in this new patent, could not only overcome problems encountered with the current Trans Apical and Trans Septal access routes to the mitral valve but also could provide an expeditious low morbidity intervention with realistic possibility of “same day” discharge and rapid, easy adoption by clinicians.”
This new US patent is an addition to CardioPrecision’s extensive and multi-layered portfolio of intellectual property (IP), which includes patents, design registrations, trademarks, and copyrights in the main medical device markets worldwide encompassing both developed and emerging markets.
Dr Ying Sutherland, PhD, Chief Executive Officer remarks that “the grant of this new patent is another major milestone in the Company’s rapidly evolving portfolio of IP assets in this space, and further supports the Company’s commercial strategy in the US”.
