OCS™ Heart is designed to
Increase Transplant Volume

Potential to Dramatically Increase the Number of Heart Transplants

With the OCS, surgeons may now increase the number of hearts they accept for transplant without compromising outcomes:

  • Preserve More Hearts with Portable Perfusion: By perfusing the heart from harvest to transplant, the OCS maintains the heart in a near-physiological, metabolically active state that may allow surgeons to preserve LVH and long-distance hearts.

  • Accept More Hearts with Ex-Vivo Monitoring: By monitoring key parameters of the metabolically active heart ex-vivo, surgeons may use their medical judgement to assess a potentially suitable heart's quality and function outside the brain-death environment.  

Together these new capabilities may make it possible to increase the number of transplant procedures a center can perform without relying on an increase in organ donation rate.
