The Syntach Cardiac Support (CS)

The Syntach CS  is a permanent, active implant that can be inserted using a minimally invasive technique. It is smaller than existing LVADs and is therefore suitable for both men and women of all sizes. The Syntach CS has significant advantages over products that are currently available. These advantages include:

  • Minimally invasive – implanted via a mini thoracotomy

  • Supports the heart’s natural movement

  • Over 10 years’ durability

  • Reversible – can be removed

  • Low risk of thrombus – no rapidly moving parts in the bloodstream

  • Minimal risk of infection

  • No driveline through the skin

  • Completely implantable

  • Low energy consumption - operated by implanted battery

  • Pulsatile flow

  • Low risk of power supply interruption for the patient
