The Power to Recover.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in left ventricular unloading, our classic TandemHeart kit is the only choice.
Advanced hemodynamic support devices are designed to offer a high degree of circulatory support. Three percutaneous platforms are commercially available:
(1) percutaneous cardiopulmonary bypass (pCPB)
(2) intraluminal axial support (e.g., Impella)
(3) left atrium-to-femoral artery bypass (TandemHeart)
TandemHeart forged the temporary circulatory support device market with the launch of a one-of-a-kind Transseptal Cannula that offers a unique approach to circulatory support by balancing two critical factors: (1) a powerful pump for end organ perfusion and (2) transseptal cannulation of the left atrium to decompress and rest the left ventricle. Among all your available circulatory support options, only TandemHeart provides a steady supply of oxygenated blood to the organs while decompressing the left ventricle to reduce the work of the heart.
The TandemHeart kit components are indicated for temporary cardiopulmonary bypass up to 6 hours.
Physiologic levels of pressure (90 mmHg) and
Full power support (0.8-0.9 Watts) for organ perfusion
Maximum left ventricular unloading, up to 80-90%
Decreased myocardial oxygen demand for potential

Experience bypass in the palm of your hand. The TandemHeart Pump can be used in the Cardiac Catherization Lab or the Operating Room in a vast variety of configurations.
ProtekSolo Transseptal Cannula
The one and only percutaneous option for LA sourcing. The curved distal tip enables optimal placement in the left atrium and features 14 side holes for exceptional drainage.
Safety Enhanced. The Protek Arterial line of cannulae includes two must-have features. A stop ring to prevent over insertion and suture wings for secure attachment ot the patient.
Left Atrial Cannulation
The only device that percutaneously bypasses the Left Ventricle enabling increased Cardiac Power Output. TandemHeart does the majority of the work for the heart while allowing the LV to rest.
Power to Recover
TandemHeart provides a steady supply of oxygenated blood to the organs while decompressing the left ventricle to reduce the work of the heart.
90 mmHg pressure throughout the entire cardiac cycle
Up to 5 LPM of blood flow
Produces .8-.9 Watts of Cardiac Power
Up to 90% unloading
Other cannulation methods fail to provide the same level of support.
LifeSPARC: In the U.S., the LifeSPARC system is intended to pump blood through an extracorporeal circuit for periods lasting less than six hours for the purpose of providing either: (i) full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass (i.e., circuit includes an oxygenator) during open surgical procedures on the heart or great vessels; or (ii) temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for open surgical procedures on the aorta or vena cava.
TandemHeart Controller: The TandemHeart Escort Controller is intended to be used with the TandemHeart System. The TandemHeart System consists of the TandemHeart Blood Pump, a single use, disposable device; the TandemHeart Escort (T.H.E.) Controller, a reusable control system for the TandemHeart Blood Pump; and disposable accessory items used in conjunction with the TandemHeart System.
TandemHeart Pump: The TandemHeart pump is intended to pump the blood through an extracorporeal circuit for periods lasting less than 6 hours for the purpose of providing either: (i) Full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass (i.e., circuit includes an oxygenator) during open surgical procedures on the heart or great vessels; or (ii) Temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for open surgical procedures on the aorta or vena cava.
TandemLung Oxygenator: The TandemLung Oxygenator is intended for use in an extracorporeal circuit requiring cardiopulmonary bypass for application duration limited to six hours. Within the specified flow rate range, the device oxygenates the blood and removes carbon dioxide from the blood. Responsibility for clinical application of the oxygenator rests solely with the attending physician.
ProtekSolo 62 and 72 cm Transseptal Cannulae: The Transseptal Cannula Set-EF is intended for transseptal catheterization of the left atrium via the femoral vein for the purpose of providing a means for temporary (six hours or less) left ventricular bypass when connected to the TandemHeart extracorporeal blood pump, which returns blood to the patient via the femoral artery or other appropriate site.
ProtekSolo Venous Cannula: The Venous Cannula and Obturator is intended to cannulate vessels, perfuse vessels or organs and/or connect with accessory extracorporeal circulatory support equipment. The cannula obturator is intended to facilitate proper insertion and placement of the cannula within the vessel for extracorporeal circulatory support. These devices are to be used by a trained physician only.
ProtekSolo 15 and 17 Fr Arterial Cannulae: The Femoral Arterial Cannula and Introducer are intended to cannulate vessels, perfuse vessels or organs, and/or connect with accessory extracorporeal circulatory support equipment for a duration of six hours or less. The cannula introducer is intended to facilitate proper insertion and placement of the cannula within the vessel for extracorporeal support. These devices are to be used by a trained physician only.
ProtekDuo 29 and 31 Fr and ProtekDuo RD 31 Fr Veno-Venous Cannulae: The ProtekDuo Veno-Venous Cannula Set is intended for use as a single cannula for both venous drainage and reinfusion of blood via an internal jugular vein during extracorporeal life support procedures.
VoyagerVest: The Voyager Vest is intended to provide secure attachment of Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) components (pump, oxygenator, and tubing) to the patient during cardiopulmonary bypass.
