The round also included Mountain Group Partners, Lookout Capital and Medical Mutual.
“Contego Medical’s portfolio of angioplasty balloons and stents embodying the Integrated Embolic Protection filter platform represents a breakthrough technology, which we believe will help endovascular interventionalists reduce the risk of stroke and other procedural complications,” says Doug Reed, general partner of Hatteras Venture Partners. Doug Reed will be joining Contego Medical as a board member.
The company will use the funds to continue to grow its leadership, sales and engineering teams and to develop several new and innovative products with its next-generation Integrated Embolic Protection platform.

We are excited to partner with Hatteras Venture Partners as we continue to expand and commercialise our portfolio of products,” says Ravish Sachar, founder and chief executive officer of Contego Medical.
