Acorn Cardiovascular™ is a privately held medical device company that was incorporated in 1996 and is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Mission: Acorn Cardiovascular develops innovative solutions to successfully treat patients with heart failure and restore hope for a better, longer life. Background: Heart failure (HF) is a condition that is caused by damage to the heart muscle, which results in the inability of the heart to pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body. This highly debilitating and progressive disorder affects more than five million people in the United States and 25 million people worldwide. An estimated 550,000 new HF cases are diagnosed each year in the United States alone. Heart failure can be caused by or is the end result of a number of conditions, including coronary artery disease, prolonged high blood pressure, poor valve function or other cardiovascular abnormalities. CorCap™ Cardiac Support Device (CSD): The company’s introductory product, the CorCap™ Cardiac Support Device (CSD), is proprietary mesh wrap that is placed around the heart to provide gentle, permanent support. It is intended to prevent and reverse the progression of heart failure by improving the heart’s structure and function, leading to improvements in the quality of a patient’s life. The CorCap CSD received CE marking in September 2000. Randomized clinical trials evaluating effectiveness of the CorCap CSD have been completed in North America and Europe. The CorCap CSD has been used in the treatment of more than 460 patients worldwide.
