REVA is a development stage medical device company incorporated in Delaware, USA, that is focused on the development and eventual commercialization of its proprietary bioresorbable stent products. REVA's initial product, the ReZolveÒscaffold, which is in a clinical study phase, combines REVA's proprietary stent design with a proprietary polymer that is metabolized and cleared from the body. The ReZolve scaffold is designed to offer full x-ray visibility, clinically relevant sizing, and a controlled and safe resorption rate. In addition, by early encapsulation of the stent in the artery tissue coupled with the loss of scaffold structure over time, the ReZolve scaffold may reduce the incidence of late forming blood clots or otherwise reduce long-term disease progression, potential benefits of bioresorbable scaffolds that have yet to be proven. REVA will require clinical results and regulatory approval before it can begin selling the ReZolve scaffold.
