Margarita Camacho, MD, and Mark J. Zucker, MD, JD, Barnabas Heart Center at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, discuss the options for treating heart failure, and the benefits of the C-Pulse System. Traditional methods of treatment include medication and invasive devices, both of which have limitations and risks including infection, thrombosis and bleeding. The C-Pulse System is a uni0que device that wraps around the aorta, squeezing the artery and supporting the heart without blood contact. In addition, the C-Pulse device is implantable, mobile, and can be disconnected at any time.
Advantages of C-Pulse System:
- Minimal risk of infection
- No risk of intravascular infections, thrombosis, or bleeding
