About

Angel Valve Vienna

Angel Valve Vienna is dedicated to the development of sophisticated treatment concepts for mitral valve repair.  With the current lead product, the Mitral Butterfly® implant, we focus on the minimally invasive intervention of mitral regurgitation, a condition that affects 2-3% of the world´s population.

The Vienna, Austria based start-up is a spinoff of the Medical University Vienna, where the inventor Prof. Werner Mohl, an academic surgeon, worked for 40 years in research, patient care and medical education.  He has longstanding experience in surgical repair of the mitral valve.

The development of the Mitral Butterfly® was started by Prof. Mohl with the PRIZE program, a prototype developing program of the AWS (Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH).  During this conceptualizing phase of development, the primary concept was completely reengineered and adapted to medical needs.

Angel Valve Vienna´s core team consists of engineers and executives with multiple years of experience in the medical device industry.  The start-up is supported by a group of international partners who are proficient in the fields of intravascular devices, material technology and regulatory affairs.
