About Us

BioVentrix is a privately held medical device company headquartered in San Ramon, CA, USA. Our mission is to improve and expand the treatment available for congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by ischemic cardiomyopathy, through the development of less invasive, catheter-based approaches.

Less Invasive Ventricular Enhancement™ or LIVE™ is a revolutionary procedure which offers a new treatment option for patients suffering from ischemic cardiomyopathy. The Revivent TC™ TransCatheter Ventricular Enhancement System is a safer and less invasive alternative compared to a ventricular assist device (VAD) or a heart transplant. It was developed for the purpose of excluding discrete left ventricular scar, thereby reconfiguring abnormal cardiac geometry that leads to dysfunction. Our unique system provides a new solution for multidisciplinary heart teams and their patients by its proven clinical improvements.
