Royal Philips has announced the acquisition of CardioProlific Inc, a USA-based, privately-held company that is developing catheter-based thrombectomy approaches to treat peripheral vascular disease. Financial details of the transaction will not be disclosed.
“The acquisition of CardioProlific will further strengthen our innovation pipeline of catheter-based therapy devices,” said Bert van Meurs, Business Leader Image Guided Therapy at Philips. “We are convinced that the development of CardioProlific’s differentiated thrombectomy technologies, combined with our suite of image-guided therapy solutions, will help our customers drive the procedure innovation for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease.”
Philips’ image-guided therapy portfolio comprises interventional imaging systems, planning and navigation software, interventional devices—including catheters for diagnosis and therapy—and a broad range of services, all aimed at helping clinicians to deliver more efficient and effective care to improve the lives of the patients they treat.
