The main reasons for the growing interest in axial blood pump
is their small size, power requirements and reliability [5(10)].
The benefits are derived from the simple, yet novel, application of magnetic levitation to blood pump
Our team's world leadership in artificial heart development is reaffirmed by this patent, and by the rapid progress we are making towards clinical use of the small and reliable HeartQuest blood pump
," says Mr.
Alex Martin, WorldHeart's CEO, added that "While WorldHeart continues to focus on the ramp-up of its recently initiated Bridge-to-Transplant (BTT) US trial of the Levacor VAD, this competitive NIH award allows us to further the development of our miniaturized magnetically levitated blood pump
platform, which includes not only the PediaFlow VAD but also the MiVAD(TM).
We are successfully capitalizing on over 20 years of experience in improving multiple aspects of blood pump
design and function," said Dr.
Since being implanted with the Jarvik 2000 - a silent titanium axial-flow blood pump
- on June 20, 2000, Mr.
New Circulatory Support System will be Based on the World's Smallest Implantable Blood Pump
to Address the Needs of Pediatric Patients at Risk of Dying While Waiting for a Heart Transplant-
Novel use of a blood pump
combined with proprietary peripheral access to the circulatory system enables the Cancion CRS to increase blood flow without: 1) taking over the function of the heart, 2) requiring synchronization of the heart or 3) ever touching the heart.
CircuLite's pipeline of PCS devices is lead by the Synergy([R]) Pocket Micro-pump, the world's smallest implantable blood pump
currently in a CE Mark clinical trial.
We are excited to participate in developing a blood pump
designed from first principles to meet this critical need.
Synergy is a micro implantable blood pump
, the size of a AA battery, that can be implanted superficially in a "pacemaker-like" pocket.
In MedQuest's most recent move to expand its IP portfolio, an exclusive licensing agreement was signed with the University of Pittsburgh for technology rights to the Streamliner magnetically levitated, axial flow, blood pump
, and the award winning magnetic levitation control scheme associated with the Streamliner pump.
Synergy is a miniature implantable blood pump
, the size of a AA battery, that can be implanted superficially.
This feat can be accomplished because the HeartQuest(TM) blood pump
has a rotor completely suspended in a magnetic field, eliminating mechanical wear.
The Synergy Pocket Circulatory Device is a small implantable blood pump
designed to provide long-term, partial circulatory support to patients with chronic heart failure.
