CIRCULITE® SYNERGY® POCKET MICRO-PUMP TO BE FEATURED AT THE 7th BIENNIAL MECHANICAL CIRUCLATORY SUPPORT SYMPOSIUM
SADDLE BROOK, N.J. (October 28, 2011) -
CircuLite®, Inc. will be participating at the 7th biennial Mechanical Circulatory Support being held November 4-6, 2011 in Berlin, Germany with a booth featuring it’s Synergy® Pocket Micro-pump. Synergy is the first micro-pump designed to provide long-term circulatory support to improve the quality of life for a broad range of chronic heart failure patients.
A company representative will be available at the CircuLite booth to provide demonstrations, review the latest updates from the ongoing CE Mark trial and answer questions about the Synergy technology.
The Synergy® Pocket Micro-pump represents a new approach to minimally invasive circulatory support that can transform chronic heart failure management by providing a less-invasive, elective treatment option for patients before their disease state becomes emergent. Synergy is the first implantable system designed to provide partial circulatory support for long-term use in millions of unserved patients that have NYHA Class IIIb/early IV disease.
CircuLite’s patented micro-pump provides up to 4.25 L/min of flow, which increases total cardiac output, offloads the heart, allowing it to rest, and potentially enables beneficial recovery of heart function. The size of a AA battery, the device is small enough to be implanted subcutaneously in a “pacemaker-like” pocket through a minimally-invasive procedure.
CircuLite is transforming heart failure treatment with the development of minimally-invasive circulatory support devices designed to provide long-term support. By enabling a proactive and lower-risk treatment approach by supplementing a patient’s native pumping capacity, CircuLite has the potential to improve the quality of life for millions of chronic heart failure patients and their families. CircuLite’s pipeline of devices is lead by the Synergy® Pocket Micro-pump, the world’s smallest implantable blood pump currently in a CE Mark clinical trial. Next-generation Synergy micro-pumps include an endovascular system, a fully-implantable system and a pediatric system.
