SoniVie, a company based in Israel, won FDA Breakthrough Device Designation for its TIVUS intravascular ultrasound system for patients suffering from pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).

It works thanks to a special catheter, delivered into the pulmonary artery via a right heart cath procedure, that emits ultrasound at frequencies that destroy nerve cells.
