About Revamp Medical

Revamp Medical is dedicated to improving outcomes for patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) through novel technology designed to alleviate congestion due to fluid overload. Approximately 1.8M patients are admitted to hospitals with ADHF in the United States annually and it is the leading cause of hospitalization in patients over 65 years old. Approximately 30% of those patients have an insufficient response to the current standard of care, which includes intravenous diuretics, resulting in longer hospital stays, hospital readmissions, persistent symptoms of congestion and higher mortality. The Company's DorayaTM device is a catheter delivered flow modulator placed temporarily in the inferior vena cava just below the renal veins. Doraya is designed to lower central venous pressure (CVP) and renal afterload, thereby improving renal filtration and responsiveness to diuretics. Patients are currently being enrolled in a U.S. feasibility study to evaluate the potential of this novel approach in the treatment of ADHF. Doraya is limited by Federal law to investigational use only and is not approved for sale. Please visit for more information.
