The Future of Cardiac Surgery

 

A GLOBAL HEALTH PROBLEM

 

“82 million Americans suffer from 1 or more types of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and it is the cause of 1 out of every 6 deaths in the US. And every year”

Last year 250,000 Americans undergo coronary artery bypass surgery to mitigate its effects. The total economic burden of CVD is staggering, exceeding $286.6 billion in 2007. (Source:AHA Heart Disease and Stroke 2012 Update). In 27 member states of the European Union (EU) the burden of CVD is also significant as it remains the main cause of death, contributing to over 2.0 million deaths each year. The death rates are generally higher in Central and Eastern Europe. The total cost of CVD to the EU economy is estimated at €192 billion a year.

The eSVS Mesh is designed to be fitted like a sleeve on the outside of saphenous vein grafts, or SVGs, to strengthen SVGs used in coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
eSVS® Mesh
 
“The eSVS Mesh is designed to improve the long-term outcome of CABG procedures by addressing limitations of unsupported saphenous veins.”

The eSVS Mesh is fitted like a sleeve on the outside of a saphenous vein graft to strengthen the vein and to give that vein graft the physiological attributes of an artery by;

  • Strengthening the vein graft to prevent vessel expansion and the resulting damage
  • Reducing vein graft diameter (radial constriction), leading ot a more uniform lumen and faster, arterial-like blood flow through the graft
  • Matching typical compliance(pulsing) of an artery.
This device is commercially available for use in select international markets
