The Revivent™ Myocardial Anchoring System is the only technology that corrects the fundamental cause of heart failure (HF) - too much stress or tension on the left ventricular wall (LV) of the heart - by directly reducing its overall size including circumference and volume. This reshapes the LV to its more natural state to improve efficiency so that with each heartbeat, more blood is pumped out to the rest of the body. The result is a clinically proven improvement in the quality of life for most patients.
A revolutionary procedure called less invasive ventricular enhancement™ or the LIVE™ procedure allows surgeons to place the Revivent System without using cardiopulmonary bypass or making incisions into the heart. Conventional surgery used to reduce the size of the LV requires both and is not a viable option for many patients. The LIVE procedure offers a new treatment option and new hope for heart failure patients.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that once the volume of the LV is reduced, a cascade of positive clinical outcomes follows almost immediately. Durable significant improvements across six clinically validated outcome measures lasting beyond one-year follow-up were reported.1
The Revivent TC™ Transcatheter Ventricular Enhancement System requires regulatory approval and is not yet commercially available.
