Second Heart

Aorta Positioned Circulatory Assist Pumps

High Flow

Low Profile

Wireless Power Option

Incorporating VibroCell vibrational technology designed to minimize risk of thrombosis

Two Models:

1.  Temporary circulatory assist support pump(s) on tip of endovascular aortic catheter.

2.  Removable chronic wireless powered implant circulatory assist pump within an aortic stent.

Designed to (proper randomized blinded placebo controlled clinical data is not available yet to support these intended uses yet) :

• Reduce heart work load and improve perfusion.

• Improve renal function.

• Get acute decompensating heart failure patients back to normal hemodynamics.

• Support heart regeneration procedures.

• Help patients recover from cardiogenic shock.

• Reduce risks associated with percutaneous catheterization interventions (High Risk PCI).

• Help patients on amputation list to recover their limbs when used in combination with limb regeneration technologies such as bioelectric protein release and stem cell/growth factor composition injections (Limb Salvage). 

  • Super Easy Aorta Position Insertion
  • Stable Over Time 
  • Provides hemodynamic support in minutes. 
  • Designed to minimize heart valve damage.
  • Designed to minimize coronary re-perfusion injury.
  • Low shear stress on blood.  Minimizes hemolysis.
  • Only circulatory assist pump with VibroCell vibrational energy designed to reduce thrombosis risk reduction. 
  • Wireless power option designed to reduce infection risk compared to external drive line systems. 
  • Wireless power designed to improve patient quality of life. 
  • Designed to reduce end diastolic pressure.
  • Designed to reduce end diastolic volume.
  • Designed to reduce oxygen demand of myocardium. 
  • *5 to 6 liters of flow per minute depending on aorta diameter and impeller speed. 

* Estimated.
