ICHOR was recently featured in MedTech Strategist in the “Start ups to Watch” by senior writer Mary Stuart. The two-page article discusses how ICHOR Vascular is bringing the benefits of a minimally invasive procedure to Arterial Embolectomy.
Acute limb ischemia, the sudden occlusion of a peripheral artery by clot or other embolic material, is a life- and limb-threatening condition that affects a significant number of people. Less than stellar outcomes after surgical arterial embolectomy haven’t improved in 30 years, despite the implementation of multidisciplinary team approaches to managing the condition. ICHOR Vascular hopes to change that with an easy-to-use, one-size-fits-all percutaneous device.
