Parachute Heart Failure Treatment

Mechanism of Action

 
“Restoring Effect”
 
Developed to reduces wall stress in the upper chamber by changing LV geometry and reducing volume
 

“Synchronization Effect”
 

Developed to replace the eccentric wall motion in the apical region with a more compliant Parachute. The designed benefits of synchronized apical wall motion throughout the cardiac cycle allows for improved cardiac output and reduced filling pressure.
