to developing medical innovations for children

Safer for Children

In 2010, fifty pediatric cardiologists and a non-profit collaborated to address the lack of pediatric medical devices.  Together they developed a series of angiography catheters, introducers and guide wires specifically for children.  The first and only to receive FDA clearance for pediatric use.  To date, over 15,ooo babies have been treated globally with PediaVascular’s devices.

PediaVascular awards $25,000 to researchers at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Ireland for development of a novel pediatric catheter at the the Pediatric Interventional Cardiac Symposium – September 2018.
