Diasolve

Medical Technology - Cardiovascular
Diasolve is dedicated to improving coronary artery investigations, for cardiologists and their patients, by developing smart devices which improve PCI guidance procedures such as FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve). FFR normally involves a pressure wire together with a high-dose of intravenous adenosine. Diasolve will be the first to make it routinely possible to deliver the drug and device directly into the coronary arteries simultaneously. Intracoronary (IC) Infusion of adenosine can deliver superior hyperemia compared to standard IV infusion, using a fraction of the dose and with reduced delays and patient discomfort. This can lead to better treatment decisions.
