Vectorious’ in-heart microcomputer wins FDA breakthrough nod
November 30, 2020
November 30, 2020. Vectorious Medical Technologies today announced that the FDA has granted breakthrough device designation for the company’s left atrial pressure (LAP) monitoring device.
The V-LAP system is the first digital, wireless, battery-free device that can communicate from deep within the body using high-resolution waveform morphology, according to the Tel Aviv-based startup. Because the pressure of the heart’s left atrium is the earliest and most accurate real-time indication of heart failure exacerbation, company officials believe the feedback provided by the V-LAP will enable a significant improvement in heart failure management.
