The Valvulotome® is a catheter-based surgical device for cutting and disabling venous valves. It is used by vascular surgeons to perform an in-situ bypass of the lower extremity arteries with existing veins.
The client wanted to evolve an early stage prototype of the device into a more controllable and manufacturable product. The cutter head design had to meet strict user requirements for operating the controller and to address safety issues.
