Next generation
full-body embolic
for TAVI


Our goal is to develop the next generation embolic protection device to reduce the risk of stroke and other complications during catheter-based structural heart procedures. The CAPTIS® concept and unique structure was created out of deep understanding and knowledge of the TAVI procedure and the unmet need.


During catheter-based, left-heart procedures such as TAVI, embolic particles are often released to the blood flow. Particles migration to the brain may cause a spectrum of neurological deficiencies, from cognitive impairment to debilitating stroke. Emboli released to distal organs may result in acute kidney injury and ischemia.


The CAPTIS® is a next-generation full-body embolic protection device, easily and intuitively deployed and retrieved. The device is securely positioned in the aorta, protects its surface while facilitating a seamless TAVI procedure. Its distinctive, triple action design provides a full-body embolic protection by deflecting, capturing and removing embolic particles. Uniquely, it requires no additional access and does not interfere to the procedure workflow.
