ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hatch Medical, L.L.C., a medical device incubator and technology brokerage firm, announced today that it has been retained by Dr. Frank Levy, and his companies, Portable Medical Devices, Inc. and AngioAdvancements, LLC. Hatch Medical will broker the sale of a novel medical gas management system, the CO2mmander® and complimentary product, AngiAssist® that permits the safe delivery of medical-grade CO2 gas.
Medical uses of CO2 gas continue to grow worldwide, as physicians in a variety of fields have increasingly embraced carbon dioxide-based procedures that are often safer and more cost-effective treatment options. Common uses for CO2 include insufflation, diagnosing peripheral vascular and aortic disease, suspension of embolics and sclerosants used to treat uterine fibroids, tumors, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and vascular malformations.
Developed by Dr. Levy, the CO2mmander® is the only hand-held, multi-use delivery system that converts medical-grade CO2 liquid to gas. “We’re very excited to be offering a portable, and convenient system for CO2 delivery,” stated Dr. Levy. “When combined with the AngiAssist® gas management delivery system, operators can be assured of a safe, uni-directional delivery of CO2 gas without the risks or potential dangers experienced with other systems,” added Dr. Levy.
The CO2mmander® is intended to provide a safe, convenient source of carbon dioxide gas to health care professionals in hospital or medical office settings where small volumes of CO2 are needed. The device is for general use by physicians and is not marketed for any specific treatment or medical purpose. The AngiAssist®, a disposable single use system, incorporates a proprietary “K-Valve” technology that ensures the operator always knows the direction of flow.
“Currently marketed in the USA, the CO2mmander® and AngiAssist® technologies have already proven to provide innumerable clinical benefits to patients and expand CO2 procedural options to physicians,” commented Steve Hvozda, Principal of Hatch Medical, L.L.C.
