36 Life Sciences Report – Cardiovascular Medical Technology Decision support software for treating mitral valve disease Approximately 7,200 mitral valve surgeries were completed in Germany in 2014, 1,300 of these in combination with an aortic valve surgery. There are numerous options for intervention in cardiac valve diseases. The treating physician decides which treatment to use for a specific patient with the help of guidelines, experience, and based on medical imaging procedures such as echocardiograms or CT scans. It is often difficult to predict how a specific treatment will affect valve function or affect the overall cardiac system. This is why the Laboratory for Bio-Fluid Mechanics at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin has developed decision support software to provide physicians optimal support in selecting treatment methods. The software is designed to allow virtual replication of real operations and interventions. The change of the heart function and haemodynamics by a planned operation is to be predicted. Different therapy options can be tested for their suitability to determine optimal treatment for the patient. is used, cardiac functions are assumed partially or almost completely by a mechanical blood pump connected in parallel to the heart. The pumps are situated either outside the body for small patients or patients that need support for both ventricles, or are completely implanted for left ventrical support. Berlin Heart has been working on these highly innovative and highly complex medical devices for over 15 years. As a family led, mid-sized company, it specializes in the development, production, and global distribution of VAD systems. Berlin Heart is a global market leader and covers the entire spectrum of medical indications with its products. The company addresses the needs of VAD therapy patients of all ages, from newborns to adults. The EXCOR ® Pediatric system is the only VAD in the world approved in all relevant markets and specially developed for children. It is part of standard treatment at more than 100 specialist clinics. Besides the companies mentioned above, over 20 firms in the region - most of them small and mid-sized - are involved in the field of cardiovascular medical technology. These include Osypka Medical or Berlin Heals, which uses micro current technology to treat cardiac insufficiency. Furthermore, Medtronic, which is a global player in cardiovascular developments, plans to intensify its activities in Berlin.
