OCS™ Heart

The only device currently under FDA review for utilized and unutilized donor hearts

Often referred to as a “Heart-in-a-Box”, the OCS™ Heart is a revolutionary system that preserves donor organs.

The OCS acts as a miniature intensive care unit that keeps organs alive and healthy by preserving them in a natural state that mimics the human body

so that organs can remain viable for transplant along the way to recipients.

31% – 20 or more mins of down time
28% – LVEF of 40-50%
13% – Older donors >55 years
  8% – Coronary artery disease
(31 patients had 2 or more indications)

– Patient survival at day-30 post transplant
– Absence of severe primary heart graft dysfunction (PGD) in the first 24 hours post-transplantation
