Interim data will be presented from the recently expanded U.S. early feasibility study evaluating the safety of the investigational AccuCinch® Ventricular Repair System designed for the treatment of heart failure and functional mitral regurgitation (FMR).

Ancora Heart’s primary TCT conference activities include:

Saturday, September 22

  • Didactic Session: Interventional Heart Failure and Hemodynamic Support, Part 1, Percutaneous Ventricular Reshaping of the LV for Chronic Heart Failure: Ancora
  • Presented by Daniel Burkhoff, M.D. at 11:44 am in Room 6D, Upper Level

Sunday, September 23

  • Didactic Session: Transcatheter Mitral Valve Therapies, Part 1 - Mitral Valve Repair, AccuCinch Basal Ventriculoplasty for Functional MR and Heart Failure: Device, Procedure, and Updated Outcomes
  • Presented by Mark Reisman, M.D. at 5:05 pm in Room 1, Upper Level

Ancora Heart’s AccuCinch therapy has the potential to treat heart failure and FMR patients in whom the disease has progressed beyond the ability for medications and pacemakers to manage symptoms or for whom the risks of open-heart surgery are too high. Unlike current technologies that replicate surgical procedures to replace or repair an otherwise-normal mitral valve, AccuCinch is designed to repair the left ventricle directly to address the fundamental cause of heart failure.
