MID utilizes proprietary PolyCor anchors as the basis of its technology platform. The PolyCor anchors were developed to facilitate the conversion from open surgical techniques to catheter-based procedures. The ultra-low mass, implantable PolyCor anchors are biocompatible and comply with natural cardiac function. The anchors are deployed from catheter-based delivery systems in 4/1000ths of a second.
These ultra low-mass anchors were designed specifically for cardiac tissue. They create a secure purchase in the tissue, comply with the wall-motion and do not back out. The radiopaque markers allow for visibility of the anchor on imaging modalitiies and provide guidance for the deployment during interventional procedures.
