Anchor Technology

Internal and External Anchors are implanted in pairs to plicate and exclude the scarred portion of the LV from viable LV myocardium. On average, 3 anchor pairs are implanted.

  • Internal Anchor - Delivered percutaneously to the RV and positioned on septal scar.
  • External Anchor - Positioned on the LV epicardium through a mini-thoracotomy.
  • Tether - Traction component facilitating internal and external anchor alignment and subsequent LV wall apposition.
