which is the number one cause of death from disease.

Even in Korea, which has entered an aging society, heart disease is a major cause of death, accounting for about a third (31%) of the aging population.

Three Major Heart Diseases

The three major heart diseases that cause heart failure are (1) vascular disease, (2) valve disease, and (3) arrhythmia disease.

The traditional treatment method for these diseases was highly invasive surgical treatment, but the future development direction of modern medical technology is developing into minimally invasive treatment with excellent cosmetic effect and rapid recovery while reducing surgical wounds.

Necessity and Scale of Development of Catheter-based Non-invasive Procedures

Despite the high mortality rate, many patients are not receiving adequate treatment due to the limitations of conventional treatment (the risk of treatment itself due to highly invasive treatment). The development of a technology that can provide active treatment opportunities to these patients by developing a method of treatment using a simple catheter without surgery is a major common problem in healthcare worldwide.
