Cardiospec – Cardiology
A SPECTRUM OF CHRONIC
HEART DISEASE THERAPIES
Non-invasive treatment for ischemic myocardial areas which are no longer accessible by conventional revascularization therapies
Stimulation of local angiogenesis in ischemic
myocardium with low-energy shock waves
The ESMR therapy is a non-invasive therapy approach using Extracorporeal Shockwave technology for Myocardial Revascularization. Ischemic myocardial areas no longer accessible by conventional revascularization therapies could be treated with the Cardiospec ESMR therapy to relieve symptoms resulted from the myocardial ischemia. The treatment is performed using a shock wave generator that is designed to address the unique clinical-anatomical requirements of the chest cavity.
- Reduces chest pain and other symptoms
- Improves quality of life for patients with heart conditions
- Reduces drug intake and repeated hospitalizations
- Safe, with no side effects
- Pain-free, no anesthesia and no hospitalization required
Optimal Cardiac Revascularization
Patients with advanced CAD frequently have recurrent angina. Surgical and interventional options for these patients typically have been exhausted or will result in only partial revascularization. The Cardiospec ESMR therapy offers new hope for these patients and provides therapy which complement existing treatment procedures. A cardiac ultrasound imaging system is used to locate the treatment area and to map the exact position and extent of the ischemic zone. Shock waves are then delivered via the anatomical acoustic window to the treatment area under ECG R-wave gating. Several treatment sessions are required to obtain optimal results.
Treating the heart of the matter
Medispec’s novel technology for Cardiology provides a unique therapy for unsolved medical conditions that complement existing treatments. This echocardiography-based therapy enables a non-invasive solution with short treatment time and no side effects. The ESMR technology has proven to be safe in more than 60 medical centers worldwide.
