Cardiac Intervention Set (CiSet)

Cardiac Intervention Set (CiSet)

Short term support - a life-saving decision

Supporting patients during high-risk percutaneous cardiac interventions

Overview

When treating patients with high-risk PCI, the physician should take into account a 7 - 10% risk of acute hemodynamic instability; this almost always leads to the need for urgent circulatory support[1]. Cardiac assist devices can be used to regain stability and to support the patient as quickly and effectively as possible.

Cardiac Intervention Set (CiSet)

CiSet Background

  • Rising numbers of cardiac interventions are occurring, especially in older and sicker patients [2] [3] [4]
  • Increasingly complex cardiac interventions occur after the introduction of new stent variations (e.g. drug eluting or dissolving stents) and evolving technologies (e.g. minimally invasive valve-replacement) [5]
  • Increased need for, and acceptance of circulatory support during high-risk PCI [1] [6] [7] or valve replacement.

Benefits at a glance

  • First standardized tubing set for ECLS during high-risk PCI
  • Designed to be used for up to 6 hours this set can serve as a back-up solution to cover the phase of highest risk of instability and take over full support if necessary
  • Quick and easy set-up and priming for fast deployment in emergency situations
  • Low priming volume minimizes hemodilution
  • Connection of external pressure measurement and arterial temperature is possible
  • Integrated centrifugal pump and heat exchanger for precise temperature management.
