The story of little Daniel is deeply emotional, and we are more than happy that he crossed the bridge to transplantation thanks to EXCOR® and a great team of pediatricians in Munich.
❤ Shortly before, Luca also received the news that a donor heart is available!
Luca was born with a single-ventricle heart, a failing of his #Fontan circulation led to a dramatic deterioration of his health condition. A listing for a donor heart was thus no longer possible.
With the help of the newly developed EXCOR® Venous Cannula, Luca became the first patient in the world to receive a standardized sub-pulmonary circulatory support, and with the EXCOR® Active mobile drive he recovered very quickly. Luca was listed for a donor heart again!
We take our hats off in high appreciation to the great team of specialists of heart surgery at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich! We are grateful for the trust placed in Berlin Heart.
