VenoStent is med device and biomaterials company that is developing a smart, resorbable polymer with many biomedical applications, the first of which is as a vein wrap to reduce vein collapse in dialysis patients. While hemodialysis serves as the primary lifeline for 460,000 kidney disease patients in the US, 40-60% of their access sites collapse and fail within the first year. This increases patient mortality to 50%, a coin flip, and costs Medicare billions each year. We're here to stop that.
