REVA is a medical device company located in San Diego, California, USA, that has developed and commercialized a proprietary drug-eluting bioresorbable scaffold, as an alternative to metal stents, to treat coronary artery disease. Scaffolds provide restoration of blood flow, support the artery through the healing process, then disappear (or “resorb”) from the body over a period of time. This resorption is intended to allow the return of natural movement and function of the artery. The Company’s Fantom® scaffold received European CE Marking on April 3, 2017. It is designed with thin struts while maintaining strength and distinct ease-of-use features including complete scaffold visibility under x-ray and expansion with one continuous inflation.
