Vector-HF trial was launched in the UK
The first V-LAP implantation in the UK was done on July 16th. The procedure, the first to be done in a woman, took place at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, under the leadership of Professor Francisco Leyva.
6 V-LAP procedures done up to date
Over the past months 6 patients were fitted with the V-LAP. The last procedure was done this week by Professor Ulrich Schäfer in Marienkrankenhaus, Hamburg. We expect to double the number of enrolled patients by the end of this year.
Removal of atrial fibrillation criteria
Removal of atrial fibrillation criteria was approved by the competent authority and ethics committee in the UK. We are working on removing this exclusion in Germany and Italy as well by the end of the year.
