Helping to Improve the Way the Heart Pumps
South Denver Cardiology is a cutting-edge practice! The latest copy of Porter Adventist Hospital’s Vibrant magazine (page 4 and 5) features Ira Dauber, MD and Sri Sundaram, MD and their newest state-of-the-art procedures. Dr. Dauber has a new life-saving treatment for congestive heart failure, and Dr. Sundaram is one of the first physicians to implant a leadless pacemaker that weighs less than a penny.
Clinical Trials at Porter Adventist Hospital
Cardiologists at Porter Adventist Hospital are participating in patient trials to test devices that help improve the way the heart pumps:
- BioControl Medical CardioFit® – a device used in patients with congestive heart failure that stimulates the vagus nerve to help calm the heart and make it beat more efficiently.
- St. Jude Medical Nanostim™ Pacemaker – the world’s first leadless pacemaker that is implanted directly into the heart through a catheter (small tube) to help regulate a person’s heartbeat.
