Building on their existing cooperation, both companies now join forces to set new standards in cardiovascular image fusion and 3D navigation
Ziehm Imaging announces the acquisition of Therenva, a French-based developer of planning and imaging software tools for cardiovascular procedures. Building on a two-year market cooperation in Europe, Ziehm Imaging and Therenva have now taken the next step: Ziehm Imaging will leverage its strong distribution network of mobile C-arms to market Therenva’s current product portfolio globally. In a next step, the focus will be on co-developing new solutions to provide enhanced pre- and intraoperative image-based decision support systems in the cardiovascular field, and potentially further clinical areas.
Deeper integration of soft-and hardware
Founded in 2007, Therenva supports physicians in planning and performing minimally invasive endovascular interventions through innovative imaging solutions. The current portfolio includes EndoSize and EndoNaut, a patented solution for intraoperative 3D navigation and localization of devices providing more confidence, accuracy, and visual comfort during catheterization procedures.
“We are really excited to extend our partnership and work even closer together with the committed team at Therenva,” says Klaus Hörndler, CEO at Ziehm Imaging. “The Therenva portfolio is the perfect addition to our C-arm portfolio, and we look very much forward to further driving the OR integration in the future together.”
Setting new standards in image fusion and 3D navigation
By bundling the C-arms of Ziehm Imaging and the EndoNaut solution, physicians already benefit from advanced 3D intraoperative navigation for optimal guidance in endovascular interventions. “Joining forces with Ziehm Imaging as innovation leader in mobile C-arm technology is a great opportunity for us to make our software devices available to physicians globally,” states Cemil Göksu, Co-founder and CEO of Therenva. “A deeper soft- and hardware integration will allow us to develop solutions that will set new standards in image fusion and 3D navigation to provide clinicians with powerful yet seamless workflows supporting their patients’ treatment.”
