Vascular stenosis is the most common cause of heart attack or stroke.
Until now, these narrowings or occlusions have usually been treated surgically by dilating them via cardiac catheterization or by bridging them with a bypass. But the body, with the right support, can bypass these constrictions itself and create natural bypasses in this way.
A research study at the Charité hospital in Berlin was able to show how a medical innovation called HERZHOSE® can provide this impetus. In this process, the fine collateral vessels of the heart are “trained” by a controlled pushing force of the blood and formed into large blood vessels. The HEARTHOSE® supports the pulse beat and optimizes the thrust with each heartbeat of the patient.
