Jenavalve was founded in Munich in 2006. It is specialised in developing transcatheter aortic valves that can be implanted via the femoral vein or an incision between two ribs. Jenavalve’s product is relatively easy to implant and is minimally invasive. JenaValve’s catheter has a unique design with feelers and a clipping mechanism, which allows for accurate positioning and anchoring support. The technique is also expected to be time and cost saving and to reduce the risk of complications.
