ImaCor Inc., the developer of the world's only hemodynamic transesophageal echocardiography (hTEE™) management device, announced today that transplant and mechanical circulatory support (MCS) physicians from around the world gathered in Montreal at an hTEE symposium to hear from heart failure experts about the value of hTEE management. The symposium took place Wednesday, April 24th during the 33rd Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions of the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation (ISHLT).
“hTEE has become an essential tool in our ICU to meet the critical, patient management needs created by use of these evolving, life-saving MCS technologies.”
hTEE is the only technology in critical care that provides continuously available, direct visualization of heart filling and function at the bedside. Presenters from Stanford Hospital (CA), Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NJ), and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (PA) shared how hTEE provides a more complete way to manage their MCS patients. Clinical studies and case reports presented by the clinicians illustrated that using hTEE helps protect the right ventricle (RV) in post-operative MCS management, avoids unnecessary re-operations, and facilitates the better management of complications, thereby lowering ICU costs.
