EXCOR® Adult has proven its effectiveness in several thousand cases, demonstrating high efficiency and safety. The system is intended for adult patients with severe heart failure
The immediate benefit for such patients is to restore hemodynamics and improve blood circulation when using a mechanical device. In addition, often in patients with unfolded cardiogenic shock, the function of the parenchymal organs is significantly improved and even normalized.
EXCOR® Adult is a mechanical assisted circulation system that supports the pump function of the left and / or right ventricle of the heart of any duration. EXCOR® Adult has proven its effectiveness in several thousand cases, demonstrating high efficiency and safety.
The system is intended for adult patients with severe heart failure. The immediate benefit for such patients is the restoration of hemodynamics and improve circulation on the background of the use of a mechanical device. In addition, patients with developed cardiogenic shock significantly improved and even normalized function of parenchymal organs. Using the mobile drive Excor Mobile Drive System, patients are able to perform everyday tasks, do their favorite things, move freely in the room and on the street.
Treatment with EXCOR® Adult allows you to return to the highest possible quality of life, having such a serious heart disease.
Patients usually carry the system very well, thereby gaining valuable time in anticipation organ for transplantation, or, in a favorable case, restore normal functioning of one's own heart.
Indications for use:
The EXCOR® Adult system is intended for use in acute or chronic ventricular failure, refractory to adequate drug and interventional treatment.
Worldwide, the system is implanted in patients with NYHA class IV heart failure, rated 1-5 according to the INTERMACS scale.
EXCOR® Adult VAD System has been successfully used in patients with:
- acute myocarditis
- postcardiotomy insufficiency
- complicated congenital heart disease
- posttransplantation insufficiency
EXCOR® Adult provides vital treatment for patients with renal and / or liver failure, as well as after cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
It is possible to switch from ECMO and short-term auxiliary circulatory systems to EXCOR® Adult.
During blood circulation support with EXCOR® Adult diagnostic or interventional catheterization is allowed.
The time for maintaining blood circulation can vary from a few hours to many months.
Maximum pump use time: 500 days.
Potential application strategies:
- Bridge to recovery
- Bridge to heart transplantation
- Final therapy
