Respicardia Announces Results of remede System Pilot Study for the Treatment of Central Sleep Apnea

Respicardia announced results from the remede System Pilot Study during the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) Late Breaking Scientific Session in Orlando. Dr. William T. Abraham of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus presented the results for the first and only implantable device for respiratory rhythm management to treat central sleep apnea (CSA). The remede System Pilot study represents the first prospective, multi-center, global trial to treat CSA. Implanted by electro physiologists using a procedure similar to the implantation of intracardiac devices, the remede system is designed to restore normal sleep and breathing to improve respiratory and cardiovascular health in patients with CSA. A total of 44 CSA patients were implanted with the system and completed 6 months of follow-up. Patients experienced a greater than 50% decrease in apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), improved oxygenation by over 50%, decreased arousals and improved quality of life. CSA is associated with increased mortality and hospitalization in heart failure (HF) patients. Studies show that CSA affects up to 40% of HF patients and 30% atrial fibrillation patients.

Respicardia Announces Enrollment of First Patients in Pivotal Trial of the Remede System for the Treatment of Central Sleep Apnea

Respicardia announced that the first patients have been enrolled in the pivotal trial to evaluate the remede system in patients with Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). The Respicardia pivotal trial is a randomized, controlled study to compare the use of the remede System with medical therapy versus medical therapy alone. Patients will be enrolled at 25 centers in the United States with additional centers in Europe. Dr. Maria Rosa Costanzo, Medical Director of the Midwest Heart Specialists Heart Failure Program and the Edwards Center for Advanced Heart Failure in Naperville, IL, serves as international principal investigator.
