The article features Irvine, California-based CoreValve, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Jacques Séguin is the chief executive officer of the company. Investors include Apax Partners, HealthCap, Maverick Capital and Sofinnova Partners. CoreValve is turning valve replacement into an hour-long procedure performed in a catheter lab, and requiring just a few days of recuperation. Founded in 20011 by French heart surgeon Séguin, the company uses what it calls ReValving technology to replace a heart valve percutaneously, or via a catheter inserted through the groin--while the heart is still heating on its own.
