Vascular graft specialist Veryan Medical has secured an additional £620,000 ($1.2m) from existing investor Imperial Innovations, bringing their total investment received to date to £3.1m. Other investors in the start-up include NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts), Nikko Principal Investments and Oxford Capital Partners. Veryan, of Horsham, UK, intends to use the funding to finance the addition of a range of proprietary Swirlflow vascular stents. The technology incorporates a 3D helical design to recreate the natural swirling blood flow in an artery, thereby reducing restenosis.
