Conavi Enters into Distribution Agreement with China Grand Pharmaceutical and Healthcare
Conavi is pleased to announce that we have entered into an agreement with an affiliate of China Grand Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Holdings Limited (CG Healthcare) to serve as the exclusive distributor of our Foresight ICE System and Novasight Hybrid System in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau.
Dr. Brian Courtney, Conavi’s President and Chief Executive Officer, states that “This agreement represents an important commercial milestone for Conavi. China has the second largest volume of cardiovascular interventional procedures in the world and is growing quickly as a result of extensive investments in healthcare infrastructure. We are delighted to have found a partner that shares our vision of bringing the potential benefits of advanced image guidance to a broad range of existing and emerging minimally invasive cardiovascular procedures to patients in China.”
Conavi’s Foresight ICE System has received 510(k) clearances from the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and a Medical Device License from Health Canada and is currently being marketed in North America. The Novasight Hybrid System combines the two most frequently used intravascular imaging technologies, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT), into a single catheter and platform. The Novasight Hybrid System has been submitted to the US FDA for 510(k) clearance.
Conavi Partners with Nova Scotia Health Authority and Government of Canada to Advance Patient Care
Conavi is pleased to announce that we are spearheading a collaborative effort to develop an imaging and tissue cutting probe for guided cardiovascular surgeries. The miniaturized probe leverages ultrasound technology for both imaging and precision cutting, allowing physicians to diagnose and treat serious conditions in a minimally invasive manner.
The Government of Canada is investing $2.6+ million over five years in the Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) to develop the endoscope prototype. Throughout the development, Conavi will lend our medical and technological expertise to assist the NSHA in taking the solution from concept to creation. Upon creation, Conavi will commercialize the solution for cardiovascular surgical applications, allowing patients worldwide to benefit from improved clinical outcomes.
Fellow Toronto-based company Synaptive Medical will also assist in developing the solution and will likewise commercialize the solution for neurological applications.

DAIC Recognizes Conavi’s Innovation
Conavi is pleased to announce that our Foresight ICE System has been identified by Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) as among the most innovative new technologies at the 2016 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting in Washington, DC.
Reaching more than 25,000 healthcare professionals, DAIC is an award-winning cardiac technology publication. This year’s TCT allowed DAIC to become acquainted with Conavi’s Foresight ICE System—the first catheter-based system capable of providing both 2D and 3D ultrasound images of the cardiac anatomy around the circumference of the catheter’s tip.
Recognizing the clinical significance of our solution, DAIC singles out the Foresight ICE System in a video posted to its website. See the video here (we appear at the 3:18 mark).
It's clear that there's a need. We have a path to get there.Dr. Brian Courtney
