Based in Galway, Novate Medical is focused on developing unique inferior vena cava filter devices (IVC filters) for the prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients at transient high risk for pulmonary embolism. IVC filters are designed to capture clots, preventing them from reaching the lungs and causing PE. The lead product is the world’s first, and only, bio-convertible IVC filter. The device is unique in that it contains a bio-absorbable element that allows for protection during the period of PE risk. It eliminates the need for a second, follow-up procedure which is required to remove currently available temporary IVC filters.
