Partnering opportunity

Arch branched laser-assisted endovascular stent-graft system offered for a license agreement worldwide


Researchers of a German university invented an arch branched laser-assisted endovascular stent-graft system. This new approach of coupling stent-grafts as a stent-graft system can be used in laser-assisted treatment of aortic arch aneurysms and arch dissections under neuroprotection using an extracorporeal shunt device. The university offers its patent for a license agreement worldwide.

Partner sought

The university is looking for a partner worldwide who is willing to develop the stent prototype further and to bring it on the market in the framework of a licence agreement. The licencee should be active in the field of health care, medical technology or within medicine sector and could be a research institute or a partner from industry.


A group of researchers of a German university developed a method that relates to a stent-graft system with a diameter-related expandable first stent graft and a coupled second stent graft equipped with standing barbs. The first stent graft is utilized in areas of tubular network structure. This circular mesh can be reached in an expanded mode of the first stent-graft whereby the second stent-graft can be coupled in the expanded mode with the first one using an extracorporeal shunt device. The method is very flexible and offers an accurate placement and controlled deployment of the stent-graft. Contrary to the usual practise of open surgery to help protect the aneurysm from rupturing, the new method offers an advanced approach by using laser-assisted extracorporeal shunt device for the treatment of aortic arch aneurysms and arch dissections under neuroprotection. Moreover, the arch branched laser-assisted endovascular stent-graft system minimizes the recovery time of the patient. A patent is granted for this new methodology in Germany and applications are waiting to be granted for EP and United States. To open up the market for the stent-graft system the university offers its invention for a license agreement in Europe and beyond.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
