CroíValve (croí is Irish for heart) is a medical device company based in Ireland developing a novel device to treat tricuspid regurgitation (TR), a severe heart condition that occurs when the tricuspid valve fails to seal properly. TR results in blood flow retrograde from the right ventricle into the right atrium, with progressive symptoms including fatigue, fluid retention leading to abdominal and leg swelling, liver and kidney failure, and death. CroíValve’s solution is a coaptation valve which restores tricuspid valve function by supporting the native leaflets while preserving cardiac anatomy. CroíValve’s device promises to be safer, more effective, less traumatic, and easier to deliver than competing technologies.
