New AI-based CT imaging helps screen and assess patients for the Mitral Touch Epicardial Clip.

MORGAN HILL, Calif., Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mitre Medical Corp. and Laralab UG have partnered to provide

surgeons with the most advanced 3D epicardial models ever made prior to surgery. This software has also provided the assessment of the Mitral Touch's performance in heart failure patients in the ENRAPT MR study. Laralab's new, cloud-based platform provides the first objective four-chamber volume calculations – in near real time.

Mitre Medical's Mitral Touch is a beating heart surgical clip that interrupts the heart failure cycle by treating both the mitral regurgitation (MR) and the dilated left ventricle (LV). The device is implanted on the outside of the patient's beating heart, restoring symmetry to the mitral valve and providing subvalvular support to the ventricle.

"Laralab is way ahead of the curve with their AI-based software for the Structural Heart," said Mitre Medical CEO John MacMahon. "If we want to treat the heart as a structure, then we need to image it as a structure. LaraLab makes that happen. Their ability to provide objective, full-volume and graphic results at on-demand speeds is unprecedented. Together, we are advancing our program to put patient-specific 3D printed hearts in the hands of surgeons prior to Mitral Touch implant cases. Together, we can familiarize the surgeon with the patient's anatomy and reduce procedure times, which is in everyone's interest -- especially the patients."

The CEO of Laralab, Julian Praceus, noted, "We are excited by this partnership to help assess and enable Mitre's breakthrough approach in treating heart failure. We feel fortunate to have developed our scalable platform at such an important time for device innovation in this field. We believe this is just the beginning of Artificial Intelligence's impact in Structural Heart."
