WHAT IS CARDIOSPEC ESMR?
ESMR therapy is a new non-invasive therapy approach using Extracorporeal Shockwave technology for Myocardial Revascularization. Ischemic myocardial areas no longer accessible by conventional revascularization therapies could be treated with the Cardiospec ESMR therapy to relieve symptoms resulted from the myocardial ischemia. The treatment is performed using a shockwave generator that is designed to address the unique clinical-anatomical requirements of the chest cavity.
A cardiac ultrasound imaging system is used to locate the treatment area and to map the exact position and extent of the ischemic zone. Shockwaves are then delivered via the anatomical acoustic window to the treatment area under E.C.G R-wave gating. Several treatment sessions are requires to obtain optimal results.

WHY CARDIOSPEC ESMR?
Patients with advanced Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) frequently have recurrent Angina. Surgical and Interventional options for these patients typically have been exhausted or will result in only partial revascularization.
ESMR offers new hope for these patients and provides therapy which complement existing treatment procedures.
Shockwave therapy is the optimal therapy approach for Ischemic Heart Disease.
6 Months Post Baseline demonstrates: reduction in CCS Angina class, increase in maximal exercise capacity, increase in exercise tolerance time, improvement in physical limitation, improvement in anginal frequency, improvement in myocardial perfusion, reduction in nitrates intake per week, no acute or long term side effects were reported.
The figure below demonstrates an improvement perfusion, 6 months following ESMR, assessed by SPECT.
Recently, ESMR beneficial effects were demonstrated also in the treatment of Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO), Diastolic Dysfunction and Chronic Heart Failure (CHF). Medispec has also a strong basis to believe that the ESMR might be suitable for the treatment of Post Myocardial Infraction (Post MI) patients and now exploring this horizon as well.
