Corsens Medical Ltd. Files 510(k) Pre-Marketing Notification for Corsens Cardiac Monitor

Monitor is intended to detect heart contractility parameters required for continuous heart function monitoring

Corsens Cardiac Monitor, FDA 510k pre-market notification

May 26, 2016 — Corsens Medical Ltd. announced it has successfully completed filing of a Pre-Marketing Notification (510(k)) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Corsens Cardiac Monitor.

The company is seeking the following indications statement for the Corsens Cardiac Monitor: " “Corsens records vibrational waveforms produced by the heart contractions and transmitted to the chest wall. Corsens may be used as a tool to measure the timing of part of the events in the cardiac cycle.” The Corsens Cardiac Monitor is designed to detect cardiac contractility parameters via a series of acoustic, accelerometers and cardiac rhythm non-invasive sensors arrayed on the patient's chest.

Alon Tomas Marmor, M.D., previously clinical professor, faculty of medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Israel, commented, "Acute myocardial infarction (MI) remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Only 15-20 percent of the patients who suspect that they are having an MI and present to an emergency department have pain of cardiac origin. There is an unmet need for a device that can provide a non-invasive and quick assessment of cardiac ischemia. The Corsens Cardiac Monitor has the potential to detect myocardial contractility changes which can direct clinical management of cardiac ischemia."

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a costly tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging.

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging. This is Figure 2, showing how SPECT imaging allows the reader to distinguish between blood pool activity (ventricular cavity, etc) and myocardial activity and identify regional myocardial differences in radiotracer uptake.
