Non-Surgical Circulatory Support Device for Treatment Of Chronic Heart Failure
Aortix™, a powerful micro-pump designed to rest and heal the heart without surgery, has been awarded the grand prize of $20,000 in the 2015 "Create the Future" Design Contest. The catheter-deployed heart pump, developed by Procyrion, Inc. of Houston, TX, provides long-term treatment for chronic heart failure. Thinner than a #2 pencil and only 6-cm long, Aortix has the potential to become a low-risk circulatory assist device for a broad range of patients.
