Corporate Donation Programs
SVS industry partners have generously donated equipment and products to the vascular community during the COVID-19 pandemic. The SVS would like to shine light on the kindness and share the good that our industry partners are doing.
To support patients who may be indirectly affected by COVID-19, Medtronic recently announced a donation program for the IN.PACT™ AV Drug Coated Balloon for Arteriovenous Access Maintenance in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD).
U.S. sites affected by COVID-19 and performing AV access maintenance procedures may submit IN.PACT AV product donation requests via the Medtronic Giving Connection. Medtronic will donate up to $10 million in product, with each request fulfilled using a standardized 10-unit kit.
