Interim data will be presented from the recently expanded U.S. early
feasibility study evaluating the safety of the investigational AccuCinch® Ventricular
Repair System designed for the treatment of heart failure and functional
mitral regurgitation (FMR).

Ancora Heart's primary TCT conference activities include:

Saturday, September 22

  • Didactic Session: Interventional Heart Failure and Hemodynamic
    Support, Part 1, Percutaneous Ventricular Reshaping of the LV for
    Chronic Heart Failure: Ancora
  • Presented by Daniel Burkhoff, M.D. at 11:44 am in Room 6D, Upper

Sunday, September 23

  • Didactic Session: Transcatheter Mitral Valve Therapies, Part 1 -
    Mitral Valve Repair, AccuCinch Basal Ventriculoplasty for
    Functional MR and Heart Failure: Device, Procedure, and Updated
  • Presented by Mark Reisman, M.D. at 5:05 pm in Room 1, Upper Level

Ancora Heart's AccuCinch therapy has the potential to treat heart
failure and FMR patients in whom the disease has progressed beyond the
ability for medications and pacemakers to manage symptoms or for whom
the risks of open-heart surgery are too high. Unlike current
technologies that replicate surgical procedures to replace or repair an
otherwise-normal mitral valve, AccuCinch is designed to repair the left
ventricle directly to address the fundamental cause of heart failure.
