LUND, Sweden, Feb. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Syntach AB ("Syntach") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Meditrial Europe Ltd ("Meditrial") to support the clinical and regulatory strategies of Syntach's innovative minimally invasive cardiac support system.
Over 64 million people suffer from heart failure, one of the most common causes of death globally. Syntach Cardiac Support is a minimally invasive cardiac assist system that, unlike current technologies, does not require open heart surgery. The Syntach system is powered by an implanted battery, avoiding a drive line through the skin and many of the negative side effects associated with available devices. Rather than replacing the heart function, the Syntach Cardiac Support system supports and enhances the natural movement of the atrioventricular plane in the heart, making each heartbeat more effective.
"We are very excited to partner with Meditrial," said Patrick NJ Schnegelsberg, CEO of Syntach. " We believe this partnership will be instrumental in the successful development of our clinical and regulatory strategies aimed at bringing the Syntach Cardiac Support system patients to the U.S. and in Europe."
"We are thrilled to be working with Syntach on this groundbreaking technology," said Dr. Monica Tocchi, cardiologist, and CEO of Meditrial. "The Cardiac Support system has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of patients, and we are committed to helping Syntach bring this innovative product to market."
