Arthroventions is a Colorado LLC developing a family of devices that improve the aspiration of fluid and injection of therapeutics into the joint space. This decreases the probability of a “dry tap” and improves patient comfort.
Diagnostic aspiration and injection of medication into joints (“joint taps”) are common out patient procedures for relieving discomfort, draining infected fluid, collecting diagnostic samples, or delivering medication. However, patients are often referred to a specialist such as an orthopedic surgeon or rheumatologist, which is inconvenient for the patient and increases the cost for a simple medical procedure. Using our devices, providers can safely perform joint taps without referring their patients to a specialist.
