International summit EACTS
From 7th to 9th November 2019 our division participated in the international summit organized by the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, focused on mechanical heart support. This important summit took place for the first time in the Czech Republic and was held at the Hilton Old Town Hotel in Prague.
Our division presented short-term micro axillary intracardiac catheter cardiac support Impella in versions 5.0, CP and RP, as well as long-term mechanical cardiac support – JARVIK 2000.
In cooperation with JARVIK, the heart support manufacturer, we also introduced the unique concept of wireless recharge of long-term mechanical heart support JARVIK 2000, the only one in the world presented by JARVIK in cooperation with Leviticus.
It is a fully implantable mechanical heart support, which has its own battery implanted in the patient’s body and is recharged wirelessly using a “special vest – belt” that the patient will wear when needed. Once the battery is charged, the patient no longer needs to carry any components other than the watch that monitors the battery and cardiac support status.
During the summit there were also several meetings held, namely with Abiomed and JARVIK.
This international summit was a great success and the products we exhibited were of great interest to doctors as well as to representatives of various companies.
