Market introduction of a revolutionary innovative cardiac stimulation system for the prevention and termination of post-operative atrial fibrillation

Project description

A device for treating complications after heart surgery

Following cardiac surgery, many patients develop postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF), a type of arrhythmia that increases the risk for stroke by nearly threefold. To avoid the use of drugs, the EU-funded DefiPace-System project will bring to the market a device that facilitates the prevention and treatment of POAF in post-operative patients. The device helps the heart restore its physiological pace through a process known as bi-atrial pacing without the need for anaesthesia. More importantly, it is hand-held, easy to use and can be employed by clinical staff in the general ward of any hospital.
