Development Of A Non-Surgical Circulatory Support Device For The Treatment Of Chronic Heart Failure

Omar Benavides, Benjamin Hertzog, Jace Heuring, Reynolds Delgado, and Will Clifton

Procyrion is developing the first catheter-deployed heart pump intended for long-term treatment of chronic heart failure. Thinner than a #2 pencil and only 6 cm long, Aortix™ has the potential to become a low-risk circulatory assist device for a broad range of patients.

Aortix augments heart function by accelerating a portion of native blood flow within the pump and pushing it downstream to entrain aortic flow. Strategic placement downstream of the heart allows for combined benefit to the heart, kidneys, and other vital organs while eliminating the common VAD risks of damage to the heart and thrombotic stroke..
