Vena Medical - Regulatory Affairs Specialist

About Us:

Vena Medical is at the forefront of revolutionizing stroke treatment through cutting-edge catheter-based technologies. Our commitment to innovation has inspired our flagship products, the Vena MicroAngioscope™️ and the Vena Balloon Distal Access Catheter™️. These pioneering technologies provide neurointerventional physicians with advanced tools for treating stroke, marking a significant leap forward in medical technology. As we continue to expand our product line and impact on the medical community, we're looking for exceptional talent to join our dynamic team.

The Vena MicroAngioscope™️ is providing physicians with a new set of eyes, the world’s smallest camera that delivers a live imaging-feed from inside veins and arteries to help them treat stroke.

The Vena Balloon Distal Access Catheter™️ has combined both a distal access catheter and balloon guide catheter into one, bringing the balloon closer to the clot, reducing residual clots, increasing first-pass success rate, and cutting costs.
