KEEPING YOUR HEART HEALTHY WITH BREAKTHROUGH MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES.
A healthy heart is essential to good health. That's why at Abbott, we throw our hearts into advancing treatments for people with cardiovascular disease. Our breakthrough medical technologies — many of which are minimally invasive — help restore people's health so they can get back to living their best lives, faster.
We focus on innovative technologies that can improve the way doctors treat people with vascular diseases, heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) and diseases of the heart’s valves.
Our structural heart valve repair and replacement technologies include mitral valve repair devices, mechanical and tissue valves, transcatheter aortic valve replacement and structural heart occluders.
Our heart failure and cardiac rhythm management devices keep the heart beating at a healthy pace with pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, diagnostic and ablation catheters, mapping and visualization systems and implantable cardiac monitors. Solutions for treating heart failure with left ventricle assist devices, cardiac rensynchronization therapy and a pulmonary artery pressure monitoring system mean we have many ways to get people’s hearts working better sooner.
Our vascular stents, catheters and guidewires, vessel closure devices and diagnostic and imaging tools help keep hearts healthy.
AMPLATZER? PFO Occluder closes the patent foramen ovale (PFO) to reduce the risk of ischemic stroke, and is the leading device approved in the United States for PFO closure. It's been proven to reduce the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke in patients with a PFO over medical management alone.
AMPLATZER? Amulet? LAA Occluder closes the left atrial appendage (LAA) of the heart to reduce the risk of stroke in people with atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) who cannot rely on blood thinners. The Amulet occluder device is currently available in many countries and under investigation in the U.S.
Our Portico? transcatheter aortic valve treats aortic stenosis by replacing a diseased or damaged aortic heart valve without major surgery — providing an important option for people needing minimally invasive treatment. Available in Europe in four sizes, it is designed for control and ease of use and is fully repositionable and retrievable before being fully deployed. Portico valve offers precise placement for physicians, improving patient outcomes and is currently under investigation in the U.S.
And our innovative, first-in-class therapy MitraClip?. MitraClip — the first transcatheter mitral valve repair device — delivers a therapeutic option when no other option exists to treat mitral regurgitation, a common heart valve disease. Having been implanted in more than 60,000 people worldwide, MitraClip? is a well-established therapy with a growing body of clinical and real-world experience.
Quadra Allure? CRT-P and Quadra Assura? CRT-D — our cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices — use leads to coordinate the rhythm of the heart’s ventricles, allowing it to beat more effectively. Leading the industry with the first available quadripolar pacing system, which uses four electrodes instead of the traditional two electrodes, Quadra Allure and Quadra Assura give doctors more options to effectively and efficiently manage heart failure.
Our CardioMEMS? HF System is a pulmonary artery pressure monitoring sensor that allows physicians to proactively manage heart failure patients in an effort to keep them out of the hospital. CardioMEMS HF System is the only heart failure monitoring device that can detect changes in the pressure of blood flowing through the vessel between your heart and lungs. This information allows physicians to indicate worsening heart failure — even before you notice symptoms — and adjust medications, potentially preventing hospitalization.
HeartMate II? and HeartMate 3? left ventricle assist devices (LVAD) are mechanical heart pumps that help people when their hearts are too weak to pump blood on its own.
HeartMate II? Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) is a continuous-flow LVAD for both bridge-to-transplantation (short term) and destination therapy (long term) support. It is the first device of its kind to be approved by FDA for advanced heart failure, it and is the most studied and widely used LVAD with more than 27,000 implants.
HeartMate 3? Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) is the next generation in LVAD technology. Its centrifugal-flow design uses full MagLev? (fully magnetically-levitated) flow technology, which allows the device's rotor to be "suspended" and precisely positioned by magnetic forces, reducing the trauma to blood passing through the pump, improving blood flow as well as a recipient's quality of life.
Our Confirm Rx? Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) detects irregular heartbeats. It's the first smartphone — compatible insertable cardiac monitor to support optimal diagnosis and treatment.
Abbott's line of MRI-labeled ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) devices and CRT (cardiac resynchronization therapy) devices are all designed to send high-voltage electrical pulses to the heart if it's beating too quickly, giving doctors the ability to customize energy pulses to a patient’s needs and allowing full-body MRI scans.
The Fortify Assura? ICD is built to treat patients who will need a high-energy shock to correct life-threatening events. It learns about and adapts to your heart, and recognizes the difference between life-threatening and normal heart rates.
The Merlin.net? Patient Care Network and Merlin@home? Transmitter work together to make up a communication system that wirelessly reads data from pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and sends data to a secure website that medical professionals can access.
The Assurity MRI? Pacemaker also sends low-voltage pulses to hearts beating too slowly. It's the smallest, longest-lasting wireless pacemaker that allows full-body MRI scans.
EnSite Precision? Cardiac Mapping System allows physicians to capture more data in a shorter amount of time during cardiac mapping to support ablation procedures.
Advisor? HD Grid Mapping Catheter offers a first-of-its kind electrode configuration for high density mapping. The catheter is used in conjuction with our EnSite Precision Cardiac Mapping System.
Our FlexAbility? Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled? and TactiCath? Quartz Contact Force Ablation Catheter ablate tissue in the heart to restore the heart’s rhythm. Ablation is a procedure to remove a small area of heart tissue causing irregular heartbeats.
For coronary intervention, our extensive portfolio of drug-eluting stents, bare metal stents, coronary guidewires, balloon dilatation catheters, and guiding catheters and accessories help provide innovative, minimally invasive and cost-effective ways to treat coronary artery disease.
Products range from our XIENCE Family of Drug-Eluting Stents and TREK? Balloon Dilation Catheters to coronary guidewires.
In peripheral intervention, our full range of products includes peripheral stents, peripheral guidewires, dilation catheters and guiding catheters. The range includes Absolute Pro? Vascular Self-Expanding Stent System, Armada? 35 Catheter and the Supera? Peripheral Stent System.
