AventaMed’s V-tube device consolidates required surgical instruments into one ergonomic, hand held device, with a proprietary tube pre-loaded at its tip, allowing an ENT surgeon to place the tube in seconds. The surgeon places the device into the child’s ear, pierces the ear drum and pushes the blue button to deploy the tube. The entire device is single use and disposed of following the procedure. There is a large demand for the V-Tube device by surgeons, patients and health care providers because it is safer, lower cost, and more convenient than the current multi-instrument, operating room procedure. NCC-PDI initiated set up of project, helped complete clinical trials and obtain regulatory approval in the USA and commercialization of device.
