ENABLING A NEW STANDARD OF CARE TO FIGHT STROKE AND SAVE LIVES

Medical need

Worldwide an estimated 15 million people suffer from Stroke every year. This brain disease often leads to death or severe disabilities.

Currently, the best remedy for stroke patients is often surgery with the help of image-guided techniques (X-rays) to penetrate the brain and deliver a treatment. However, this procedure can be very challenging as the navigation takes place in a dense network of tiny brain arteries.

This complexity causes surgeons to lose much time before they can deliver a life-saving treatment. Artiria was founded to address this strong medical need.

About Artiria

ARTIRIA empowers catheters and guidewires. We develop cutting edge technologies to bring micromotion deep in the brain arteries, enabling a seamless navigation and stroke treatment.

ARTIRIA comprises a passionate team willing to bring a new standard of care to stroke surgeons for the benefit of their patients.
