OCS Heart

The only device currently under FDA review for utilized donor hearts and increasing the pool of available heart donors

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.

The Proven Benefits of OCS Heart


Greater than 90% patient survival at 30 days

Significant reduction of injurious ischemic time compared to cold storage


81% successful usage of donor hearts that had been rejected for transplant by centers using cold storage

Greater than 80% patient survival at six months

OCS heart has been used to successfully transplant over 100 hearts from circulatory death donors

The OCS Heart is an investigational device and, therefore, limited by federal law to investigational use in the US.

The value of TransMedics OCS means better outcomes, with the potential for more organs to be successfully used…to save more lives.
