Implantable, miniaturized blood pump for advanced heart failure

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Ventricular assist devices are a viable long-term treatment option for patients with advanced heart failure, but their exorbitant price tag and their propensity to damage blood has limited their use. Calon Cardio-Technology Ltd. hopes to avoid those problems with its MiniVAD, which is similar in size and weight to the smallest existing VADs, but is designed to be more efficient and process blood flow more gently.
