About Us

Veryan was formed in 2003 as the result of a technology spin out from Imperial College, London, UK. Veryan has designed, patented and developed a highly innovative three dimensional (3D) Nitinol (nickel-titanium alloy) stent technology – BioMimics 3D – based on the pioneering work by Professor Colin Caro (Emeritus Professor of Physiological Mechanics, Dept. of Bioengineering, Imperial College London) on the link between vessel geometry, blood flow mechanics and vascular disease.1

The Company’s management team has built an outstanding development group, supported by a world class Scientific Advisory Board. The Company’s head office is in Horsham, West Sussex, UK, the research and development facility is in Galway, Ireland.

On 13 Dec 2018 Veryan Medical Ltd. and Otsuka Medical Devices Co., Ltd. a 100% subsidiary of Otsuka Holdings Co., Ltd., announced the completion of the acquisition of Veryan by Otsuka Medical Devices through its UK subsidiary Otsuka Medical Devices UK Ltd.
