Valtech Cardio Ltd. Completes $17.8 Million in Series B Financing
Date:2/2/2010

OR YEHUDA, Israel, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Valtech Cardio Ltd. announced today that new and existing investors (OXO Capital Valve Ventures LLC, NGN Biomed Opportunity II, L.P., and Peregrine VC Investments II, L.P.) recently completed a Series B financing of $17.8 million.

Valtech Cardio Ltd. (Valtech) is engaged in development of a portfolio of minimally-invasive surgical and transcatheter mitral valve repair and replacement technologies designed to correct or significantly improve mitral valve function in ways that reduce or eliminate mitral regurgitation (MR).  MR is a serious heart disorder characterized by incomplete closure of the mitral valve.  The valve leakage (from the left ventricle into the left atrium), often called regurgitation, reduces the amount of blood that is pumped out of the heart during each contraction and is associated with other serious medical conditions, including atrial fibrillation.  MR is believed to be the most common form of valvular heart disease.

"The enthusiastic support from our investor group provides us with the capital necessary to complete development and initial clinical evaluation of several products designed to dramatically improve mitral valve function," said Amir Gross, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Valtech.  "The Valtech team is focused on improved annuloplasty and chordal repair technologies that will help physicians more effectively treat their patients undergoing surgical (open and minimally-invasive) and percutaneous transcatheter mitral valve repair procedures," Gross commented.

"The medical community has clearly articulated the need for advanced mitral valve repair and replacement solutions," said Lawrence C. Best, Executive Chairman of the Board.  "The mitral valve repa
