Safer for Children
In 2010, fifty pediatric cardiologists, a non-profit and a medical device firm collaborated to address the lack of pediatric medical devices. Together they developed a series of 3 French angiography catheters, introducers and guide wires specifically for children. The first and only to receive FDA clearance for pediatric use. To date physicians have treated over 10,000 children with PediaVascular's products, which are now used in 95% of US pediatric cath labs.
