Inca® Pressure-Volume Loop (PV Loop) System
CD Leycom’s initial clinical research device, the CFL-512, was the predicate device to the Inca® PV Loop System, and had enabled physicians to quantify heart function using real-time PV loop hemodynamics. This achievement laid the foundation for the need to use PV loop hemodynamics for real-time clinical decision making for select cardiac interventions.
The Inca® Pressure-Volume Loop (PV Loop) System can improve diagnosis, optimize therapy outcomes, and reduce complications in areas related to:
- Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
- Congenital Heart Disease
- Systolic/Diastolic Heart Failure (HFpEF/HFrEF/HFnEF)
- Mechanical Circulatory Support (ECMO/IABP/LVAD/pVAD)
- Structural Heart Interventions (MitraClip/TAVR/TMVR)
When compared to its predecessor, the CFL-512, the Inca® PV Loop System is in a class of its own. The Inca® is a clinical diagnostic tool that provides real-time, beat-to-beat cardiac function and performance analytics. The main feature improvements include:
- Indefinite PV loop monitoring and intra-ventricular dyssynchrony quantification
- Real-time, operator independent analysis of up to 60 variables with user-defined displays
- ‘Plug and play’ capability
- Reduced physical “footprint” (i.e. Inca modules are roughly the size of a shoebox)
- Seemless integration with CathLab or Operating Theater monitors
In short, CD Leycom’s clinical PV loop system is a “…state-of-the art” (Kitzman, Editorial: Circulation 2008) cardiac performance monitor that will provide clinicians with unprecedented insights into cardiac function on an intra-beat and beat-to-beat basis.
The Inca® PV Loop System is designed to be used in conjunction with CD Leycom’s high-fidelity, clinical PV loop catheters. These pigtail catheters are offered in 7F (with lumen) and 4F (without lumen) sizes and a variety of conductance electrode spacings to fit your intended patient population and surgical workflow.
