Over 64 million people suffer from heart failure, one of the most common causes of death globally. Syntach’s Cardiac Support System is a novel device and treatment method designed to enhance the natural movement designed to restore the heart’s natural pump by acting on the motion of the mitral valve plane during the cardiac cycle, making each heartbeat more effective. This technology does not require open heart surgery and is powered by an implanted battery, avoiding a drive line through the skin and many of the negative side effects associated with available assist devices.

Monica Tocchi, MD, PhD, and the CEO and Founder of Meditrial USA Inc (Meditrial) will present Syntach’s novel Cardiac Support System in a talk titled “Minimally Invasive Fully Implantable Cardiac Support Technology To Restore Cardiac Function In Heart Failure Patients”. during the Innovations HUB:

Syntach and Meditrial recently announced a partnership to support the development of clinical and regulatory strategies for Syntach’s innovative minimally invasive cardiac support system.

“We are thrilled to be working with Syntach on this groundbreaking technology,” said Dr. Monica Tocchi, cardiologist, and CEO of Meditrial. “Syntach CS is based on recent research and new insights into the importance of mitral valve plane displacement, which accounts for 60% of left ventricular stroke volume. Independent studies have shown correlations of this maker of cardiac dysfunction with reduced survival and major adverse cardiac events in patients with heart failure. Excellent preclinical results have been obtained in animal models of heart failure by restoring the natural motion of the mitral plane. Clinical trials are planned to demonstrate that this device has the potential to enhance cardiac functionality and improve clinical outcomes.”

“We are excited that Syntach CS will be featured in this year’s Best Innovation Competition,” said Patrick NJ Schnegelsberg, CEO of Syntach. ” The annual CRT meeting features focused educational and training sessions that discuss new trial data, explore evidence-based research, and feature the most up-to-date techniques that can be directly applied to clinical and academic practices. This is the first time Syntach CS will be presented during a major congress, and I appreciate the recognition of our innovative therapeutic approach to address a critical unmet need for patients suffering from heart failure.”
