August 18, 2020 — Ziehm Imaging announces the acquisition of Therenva, a French-based developer of planning and imaging software tools for cardiovascular procedures. Building on a two-year market cooperation in Europe, Ziehm and Therenva have now taken the next step. Ziehm will leverage its strong distribution network of mobile C-arm angiography systems to market Therenva’s current product portfolio globally. In a next step, the focus will be on co-developing new solutions to provide enhanced pre- and intra-operative image-based decision support systems in the cardiovascular field, and potentially further clinical areas.
Ziehm Looks for Deeper Integration of Software and Hardware
Founded in 2007, Therenva supports physicians in planning and performing minimally invasive endovascular interventions through innovative imaging solutions. The current portfolio includes EndoSize and EndoNaut, a patented solution for intra-operative 3-D navigation and localization of devices providing more confidence, accuracy, and visual comfort during catheterization procedures.
“We are really excited to extend our partnership and work even closer together with the committed team at Therenva,” said Klaus Hörndler, CEO at Ziehm Imaging. “The Therenva portfolio is the perfect addition to our leading C-arm portfolio, and we look very much forward to further driving the OR integration in the future together.”
New Standards in Angiography Image Fusion and 3-D Navigation
By bundling the leading C-arms of Ziehm Imaging and the EndoNaut solution, physicians already benefit from advanced 3-D intra-operative navigation for optimal guidance in endovascular interventions.
“Joining forces with Ziehm Imaging as innovation leader in mobile C-arm technology is a great opportunity for us to make our software devices available to physicians globally,” said Cemil Göksu, Co-founder and CEO of Therenva. “A deeper soft- and hardware integration will allow us to develop solutions that will set new standards in image fusion and 3-D navigation to provide clinicians with powerful yet seamless workflows supporting their patients’ treatment.”
Therenva has designed advanced and user-friendly imaging software toolsets for cardiovascular procedures since 2007. The unique EndoSize 3D case planning software has become an essential tool in the daily practice of many physicians and healthcare professionals. By widening the skills of the users and their abilities to plan cases quickly and accurately, EndoSize saves time and improves patient care.
