CereVasc Lands $44M for New Medical Device to Drain “Water on the Brain”

CereVasc’s device, called the eShunt System, measures about two inches in length and is implanted at the base of the brain. The implantation procedure employs a minimally invasive approach that threads the eShunt through the femoral vein in the patient’s groin until the device reaches its destination. It’s the same approach used to deploy medical technologies currently used to treat vascular conditions as well as some neurological conditions, such as stroke and aneurysms.
