The round was co-led by new investors Domain Associates and Technology Partners, with continued support from current investors Versant Ventures and DeNovo Ventures.  Nimesh Shah, principal at Domain Associates, and Roger Quy, general partner of Technology Partners, will join the Benvenue Medical Board of Directors.  

The funds will be used to complete enrollment and patient follow-up in Benvenue Medical's KAST trial, the largest randomized study versus balloon kyphoplasty to date, and begin multiple spine product commercialization initiatives in the U.S. and Europe.
