About Cardio Flow

An innovative company dedicated to developing a new approach to orbital atherectomy for the treatment of peripheral artery disease

Cardio Flow, Inc., is a privately held commercial-stage medical device company located in St. Paul, MN, which designs and develops minimally invasive peripheral vascular products with the goal of providing physicians with better treatment options for peripheral artery disease (PAD) to improve patient lives.

Cardio Flow’s market-disruptive FreedomFlow® Orbital Atherectomy Platform received FDA clearance in September, 2023, and provides physicians with a highly efficient, effective, and flexible way to treat complex PAD in a wide range of vessel diameters—from 2 mm in the ankle to 8 mm in the hip.

The simplicity and sophistication of the platform also offers time savings and costs efficiencies, making it the ideal choice for today’s hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and office-based labs.
