Advantages of the Daidalos technology
While more and more intracardiac procedures are done minimal invasively, there is a need for sutureless closing devices. A good example is trans-apical transcatheter aortic valve implantion (TA-TAVI), where a catheter-valve is introduced through the apex of the left ventricle, and where there is a need to prevent bleeding from the left ventricular apex during the procedure and to close the apical hole at the end of the procedure.
Daidalos has developed a sutureless apical closing device to enable the sutureless closing of the left ventricular hole, permitting the surgeon to work through a truly minimal invasive puncture hole. Such devices have been prototyped and successfully tested in ex-vivo and in-vivo hearts.
The Daidalos sutureless closing devices may be applied to suturelessly close any hole in a hollow organ of any size.
