LivaNova celebrates cardiac perfusion milestone, surpassing one million worldwide clinical cases


LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 26, 2018-- LivaNova PLC (NASDAQ:LIVN) (“LivaNova” or the “Company”), a market-leading medical technology company, today announced its Inspire® innovative adult oxygenator system has treated its one-millionth patient.

Delivering optimized cardiac surgery perfusion for a wider patient population, the Inspire family of adult oxygenators helps minimize the impact of cardiopulmonary bypass by reducing hemodilution, improving neurological protection and decreasing inflammatory response.

“LivaNova is committed to improving perfusion and patient outcomes,” said Alistair Simpson, General Manager of LivaNova’s Cardiac Surgery business franchise. “As we celebrate the one-millionth patient treated with Inspire, we are very proud to say that the Inspire oxygenator family is reducing the physiological impact of critical cardiac surgery for patients every day all over the world.”

Since its formal launch in 2013 at the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS), Inspire has achieved record adoption and market penetration across five continents. Designed after years of research, laboratory testing and the support of a global team of clinical experts, Inspire’s advanced technology allows cardiac surgery teams to provide optimal perfusion support for adult patients, while adhering to the highest standards for neurological protection and reducing the need for red blood cell transfusions.

"We have used the Inspire oxygenator in our daily practice since it was released to optimize perfusion by reducing hemodilution and the need for blood transfusions,” said Jonathan P. Sheppard, Lead Clinical Perfusionist at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, United Kingdom. “Inspire may also improve patient outcomes by reducing multiple sources of cellular inflammation and decreasing patient inflammatory response.”
