A Healthtech startup included in the Barcelona & Catalonia Startup Hub

AORTYX. Barcelona & Catalonia Startup Hub


Carrer la Vinya, 9B 08329 Teià

Aortyx is a pioneer company founded in 2018 by researchers from the IQS School of Engineering and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona aiming to revolutionize the field of aortic implants with its innovative platform for endovascular patches. With an initial focus on treating aortic dissection, Aortyx is developing a family of biomimetic, bioresorbable endovascular patches that are deployed via a specialized aortic catheter. The patches are designed to promote natural repair of the aorta, adhering to the vessel wall and integrating with native tissue. By providing a safer and more effective alternative to traditional surgery, Aortyx has the potential to dramatically improve patient outcomes. With a strong IP portfolio, a powerful product pipeline, and a team that includes top physicians, chemists, biologists, and engineers, Aortyx is poised to capture a significant share of the $3 billion aortic implant market.
