Every day 250 patients die from postoperative heart surgery complications caused by residual blood and clots in the pericardial cavity. Complications that could have been easily prevented.
At Haermonics, we’ve developed an innovative flush-therapy that promises to make such complications a thing of the past.
Designed by a leading heart surgeon, rarely does something this simple, this effective… have such impact.
“Why should surgeons accept working under 19th century conditions, putting our patients on a drainage system that is essentially the same as the system invented a century and a half ago…with all the risk and uncertainty that it brings?
I was really tired of all of this. It is not necessary.
So I developed a drainage system that brings us into the 21st century: The Haermonics Laebroides®. A simple, but highly effective device that continuously flushes and cleans the pericardial space, preventing complications from ever arising in the first place.
No more unevacuated blood and clots leading to a growing hematoma around the heart! With the Laebroides you get real time data, giving you insight and peace-of-mind, knowing that a simple flush is preventing complications and an unnecessary re-operation.
And it works. Really well. Our randomised trials with 160 flushed patients have seen 0 unnecessary reoperations.”
