BRAIN INJURY AND RESERVE

Cerebral emboli during cardiovascular procedures can be minimized and brain reserve can be preserved. Awareness of “silent strokes” associated with cardiovascular procedures is rising among physicians and patients.
The risk of embolic brain lesions with potentially devastating outcomes — stroke, dementia and cognitive decline — should be prevented to maintain quality of life.

Keystone Heart is focused on protecting the brain from emboli to reduce the risk of brain infarcts during TAVR, atrial fibrillation ablation and other structural heart procedures. Novel devices developed by Keystone Heart are designed to help interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and
cardiac surgeons to protect the brain while performing these procedures.  The CE marked TriGuard™ Cerebral Protection Device is designed to cover all aortic cerebral branches to minimize the risk of brain damage during cardiovascular procedures. 


The TriGuard Cerebral Protection Device is not commercially available in the USA.
