Ancora Heart Enrolls First Patient in European Multi-Center Study

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 agosto 2019

Ancora Heart, Inc., a company developing a novel therapy to address heart failure, today announced the first patient was enrolled in the CorCinch EU study, a European multi-center clinical evaluation of the AccuCinch® Ventricular Repair System as a treatment for patients with reduced ejection fraction systolic heart failure (HFrEF).
The first patient was enrolled at Homolka Hospital in Prague, Czech Republic by Prof. Petr Neužil, M.D., CSc., FESC, head of the department of cardiology at Homolka Hospital and principal investigator of the study. The AccuCinch procedure was completed by co-investigator Vivek Reddy, M.D., director of cardiac arrhythmia services at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, along with Prof. Neužil.
This is the second recently initiated Ancora study evaluating the AccuCinch system focused specifically on heart failure and the enlarged left ventricle. The study will enroll up to 132 patients from heart centers across Europe.
The transcatheter AccuCinch therapy is designed to complement and enhance the existing care cardiologists provide to further manage symptoms and slow, or stop, the progression of heart failure. For some patients, AccuCinch may have the potential to reverse the enlargement of the left ventricle. For patients where heart failure has progressed beyond the ability for medications and pacemakers to manage symptoms, non-surgical percutaneous device therapy with AccuCinch may provide an effective treatment option. The AccuCinch system is designed to directly repair the left ventricle of the heart, thereby addressing the fundamental issue in the progression of systolic heart failure.
