Rethinking Treatment of Heart Failure


Left Atrial Pressure:
A novel therapeutic target.

Heart failure accounts for over 1 million hospitalizations each year and over $35B in direct annual costs. As our population ages, the disease burden is expected to rise dramatically.

At Alleviant Medical, we're developing a minimally-invasive, transcatheter device to treat congestive heart failure by targeting pressure buildup within the left atrium — the key driver of heart failure symptoms.

Our proprietary technology is intended to create a paradigm-shift in the treatment of heart failure by relieving patient symptoms, improving quality of life, and reducing hospital readmissions for over 6 million Americans currently suffering from this condition.
