The Next Frontier in Heart Failure Treatment
Cardiac Success is developing the V-sling device to improve the lives of the millions of patients who, despite guidance-directed medical therapy, continue to suffer and deteriorate from Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF). The V-sling is a transcatheter ventricular repair device designed based on a successful surgical papillary muscle approximation procedure.
Ventricular Repair Device Treating
Heart Failure with Left Ventricle Dilation
There are currently about 8 million heart failure patients worldwide whose lives could potentially be improved by treatment with the V-sling device. Cardiac Success aims to treat patients suffering from HFrEF (Heart Failure with reduced Ejection Fraction), a condition typically associated with ventricular dilation, papillary muscle dislocation, and low ejection fraction.
The V-sling is a transcatheter ventricular repair device designed based on a successful surgical papillary muscle approximation procedure.
V-Sling Unique Benefits
Restores the conical shape of the Left Ventricle
Eliminates leaflet tethering
Adjustable implant size for optimized Left Ventricle repair
Safe anchorless implant, no endocardium penetration
Does not block future interventions
Israeli Medical Device Startup, Cardiac Success Ltd.,
Closes US $5.2M Series A Financing.
The round was led by 415 CAPITAL, a specialist medical technology venture capital firm who was joined by an unnamed strategic investor and global leader in structural heart interventions. Proceeds will be used for pre-clinical testing and the completion of a First-in-Human trial of the company’s innovative “V-sling” heart failure therapy.
