This article was originally published in Clinica
VNUS Medical Technologies, a San Jose, California-based company focused on minimally-invasive treatments of venous reflux disease, has acquired exclusive rights to distribute Medtronic's U-Clip anastomotic device in the US vascular surgery market. The U-Clip is a self-closing device made from nitinol, designed to create connections between blood vessels - or anastomoses - without the need for tying knots or managing sutures. The quality of anastomoses is critical to the long-term success of procedures such as peripheral bypass surgery and arteriovenous access surgery.
