AventaMed is a privately-funded early stage medical device company based in Cork.
AventaMed has developed an innovative device which transforms ear tube surgery (grommet/tympanostomy tube) in children and adults. The insertion of ear tubes to treat infections and hearing loss, is the number one reason why children undergo surgery in an operating room, with general anaesthesia. Over 2 million children require this procedure annually making it a global market worth over $5 billion.
AventaMed’s hand-held device, the Solo Tympanostomy Tube Device (TTD), completely changes the standard of care by allowing ear tube insertion by an ENT consultant in just a few minutes. The speed of the Solo TTD procedure, gives parents and surgeons the choice to undergo ear tube surgery in a clinic, without the risks of a full general anaesthetic or the need for a costly operating room. This is reflecting a growing trend in paediatric medicine for less invasive surgery, minimising or avoiding the use of general anaesthetia and more cost-effective treatment.
