Getinge has entered into a partnership with Contego Medical. Getinge will distribute Contego’s products in Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Scandinavia, with the potential to expand into other territories.
Getinge will distribute the Paladin carotid post-dilation balloon system with integrated embolic protection and Vanguard IEPTM peripheral balloon angioplasty system with integrated embolic protection. Contego Medical’s novel embolic protection devices coupling an angioplasty balloon with an integrated distal filter on the same catheter, enables more patients to benefit from embolic protection as compared to currently available methods.
“This collaboration with Getinge demonstrates our commitment to expand access to our innovative IEP technology designed to enhance safety during interventional vascular procedures,” said Ravish Sachar, CEO and Founder of Contego Medical. “Getinge’s sales channel in key target countries will help us achieve our goal of establishing a more comprehensive approach and a new standard of care for the treatment of carotid and peripheral vascular disease.”
“With Contego Medical as a strategic partner, we will introduce a new option in the endovascular treatment of stenotic lesions. Both the Paladin and Vanguard systems, are designed to reduce the risk for embolic complications during carotid and superficial femoral artery procedures which will have a positive effect on the outcome of the procedure and the quality of life for our patients.” shared Carsten Blecker, President, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Getinge.
