Viveve Medical, Inc. is a women’s intimate health company committed to advancing new solutions to improve women’s overall well-being and quality of life. The internationally patented Viveve® System, that delivers the Viveve treatment, incorporates cryogen-cooled, monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) technology to uniformly deliver volumetric heating while gently cooling surface tissue to generate neocollagenesis in a single in-office session.
International regulatory approvals and clearances have been received for vaginal laxity and/or improvement in sexual function indications in over 50 countries. In the second quarter of 2018, Viveve initiated VIVEVE II, a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial to assess improvement of sexual function in women following vaginal childbirth after receiving approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March of 2018. If successful, this trial could support a marketing application for a new U.S. commercial indication. Currently, in the United States, the Viveve System is cleared by the FDA for use in general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis.
Viveve has initiated LIBERATE-International, one of two planned independent, multicenter, randomized registration trials for the improvement of SUI in women and plans to re-submit an IDE to the FDA for LIBERATE-U.S., after conducting certain safety testing in the third quarter of 2019. The results of these two trials, if successful, could support marketing applications in the U.S. and additional countries around the world for this new commercial indication.
