Viper™catheter

The Viper™ is a unique, versatile and multifunctional injection catheter that can be used for both treatment and diagnosis.

Distinctive and deformable needle design eliminates the risk of perforation during needle extension, enables injection into thin walls, and ensures homogenous distribution of injectates.
Safe
Efficient
Effective
Stable contact with the target organ, eliminates risk of heart or other organ wall perforation or damage. Prevents waste of the therapeutic agent. Ensures accurate intra-organ delivery and full retention of the injectate.
Safe
Effective
Self-sealing effect post-injection, as the contracting tissue shuts the needle channels and traps the agent inside the injection site. This is critical when the injectate is potentially dangerous (polymers or hydrogels, in gene therapy using virus vectors, etc.).
Safe
Multifunctional construction performs multiple procedures without needing to re-insert multiple catheters or guide-wires. It can be used for a broad variety of applications. No need for sophisticated assisting technologies. Reduces procedural radiation exposure for patients and doctors. Can be used with only portable ultrasound device X-ray equipment. Guaranties optimum performance.
Fast
Efficient
180 degree maneuverability means the operator is better able to steer the device without repositioning the entire catheter, which saves time and reduces the risk of tissue damage. It is the only injection catheter that can flex 180 degrees in either direction, improving navigation in both the access route and inside the heart or other organ.
Safe
Fast
Displays vital signs (Systolic/Diastolic/Mean pressures, Heart Rate) which allows the operator to monitor the catheter’s location and optimal contact with organ wall. The operator is able to monitor patient status and intervene immediately if something goes wrong. The operator is notified when the catheter tip enters the art, when it comes in contact with the heart wall, and whether the tip has remained in contact for the entire duration of the delivery.
Safe
Effective
Direct insertion into the patient abolishes the need for a guide wire or other pre-catheterization procedure. Simplifies the insertion and maneuverability inside an organ.
Efficient
Effective
Fast
Procedures completed in 10-20 minutes without general anesthesia versus 1+ hours with a conventional catheter. It takes 3 seconds to navigate the Viper™Catheter from the femoral vessel in the groin to the heart’s ventricle. Patients can return home the same day.
Fast
No Narcosis
No Hospital Stay
Affordable and economical. The device itself is priced affordably, and its multifunctionality eliminates the need to purchase multiple other tools/equipment.
Affordable
Effective
Easy to learn and use, as the Viper™Catheter doesn’t require special training. It is intuitive to use, and smooth to operate.
Safe
Effective
Delivery device and diagnostic tool. In addition to delivery applications, the Viper™Catheter can perform various diagnostic procedures, eliminating the need for other diagnostic catheters and guide wires. It performs angiography of coronary or other vessels, ventriculography; enables biopsy, ultrasonography, visual observation and others.

Test results

In pre-clinical tests the catheter proved safe while operating in the right cardiac ventricle, which is anatomically thinner than the left ventricle, and in infarcted areas. This eliminates the need for intracardiac mapping, a risk of perforation of fragile or thin infarcted tissue and implanting regenerative agents into infarcted zones.
