Making Vascular Access Complications History

Vascular access device insertion can be difficult and painful. And after insertion, 25% to 50% fail due to infection, blockage, dislodgement or vessel damage. Our goal is to make vascular access complications history.

AVATAR undertakes committed scientific work to improve health services and patient outcomes, to rigorously and independently test products and practices, and to promote local and global networks.

We strive to eliminate ineffective practices and replace them with innovative solutions, providing patients with a better healthcare experience and saving global healthcare providers hundreds of millions of dollars.
