Yearly about 1.000,000 patients undergo highly invasive heart bypass surgery, associated with long recovery times and serious complications, mainly due to te opening of the chest and stopping of the heart during the surgery.
AMT Medical developed an unique heart bypass system to enable safe, affordable and easy-to-use minimally invasive heart bypass surgery associated with a shorter recovery time and less complications.
The innovative system is designed and developed in such a way, that is applicable both in open chest and totally endoscopic procedure setting without the need of stopping the heart for even a moment.
The AMT solution is based on a technique developed for a similar problem in the brain at AMT’s sister company Elana (www.elana.com).
The AMT technique enables the heart bypass to be performed through small holes in the chest, negating the need to open the chest, use of a heart-lung machine and suturing.
For the patient, this means less chance of infections, internal bleeding, stroke and a much shorter recovery time.
