About AVENU – Now Part of MEDTRONIC
Avenu Medical, now a part of Medtronic, is dedicated to creating a paradigm shift in vascular access for hemodialysis patients. Our focus is to pursue unmet clinical needs by developing a minimally invasive, cost effective and efficient approach to vascular access.
Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Orange County, California, we have developed the Ellipsys® Vascular Access System, an innovative, image-guided, single catheter system used to percutaneously create an arteriovenous (AV) fistula for hemodialysis access (EndoAVF®).
The Ellipsys System is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for EndoAVF creation. Approval was received after completing a pivotal clinical trial in the United States with one year patient follow-up. Results of the pivotal trial can be found by clicking here.
The Ellipsys System has also received European CE Mark approval for the creation of an arteriovenous fistula in patients with chronic kidney disease requiring hemodialysis.
