Pumpinheart, a Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) spinout company, is developing a device to treat HFpEF.
The PReduction device (patent pending) is an ECG gated implantable diastolic pump in the left ventricle that reduces left atrial pressure during diastole and in sympathy with elevated pressures during exercise.
The sub-dermal power and control unit is connected to pressure sensors, an ECG sensor and the PReduction device in the left ventricle via a driveline in the left subclavian vein.
The PReduction device (patent pending) is powered and controlled by a Transcutaneous Energy Transfer System (TETS) and subdermal unit located below the left clavicle with the driveline wire delivered via catheter.
The PReduction Device (patent pending) is delivered via transcatheter implantation via femoral venous access in a cath lab by an interventional cardiologist.
The PReduction device aims to treat Stage C and D (NYHA classification) HFpEF ambulatory patients and enable HFpEF patients to survive HFpEF and live active lives at home.
The PReduction device is designed to be delivered in a cath lab with associated accessibility and short post operative recovery. The device promises to reduce HFpEF hospitalisations and the associated burden of cost on healthcare systems.
The PReduction device is at pre-clinical research phase and at least seven years years of further research and clinical trials are required before it shall be approved, certified and available.
Pumpinheart won Silver Award in National Startup Awards 2022 (Ireland) in the Medtech Startup category.
€3.14M awarded under DTIF Call 4 (2021 – 2022) to Pumpinheart-led consortium comprising Pumpinheart, Boston Scientific, Gentian Health and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland to support preclinical development of the PReduction Device to treat HFpEF.
