CHF Solutions launches ultrafiltration therapy in Israel and Palestine

US-based medical device company CHF Solutions has signed a distribution agreement with SysteMedic to make its ultrafiltration therapy available for patients in Israel and Palestine.

US-based medical device company CHF Solutions has signed a distribution agreement with SysteMedic to make its ultrafiltration therapy available for patients in Israel and Palestine.

It is the company’s second distribution partnership in the Middle East region and it expands the commercial availability of Aquadex SmartFlow ultrafiltration therapy to 16 countries outside the US.

Aquadex SmartFlow system is a fluid management platform. The system uses ultrafiltration to stabilise patients, experiencing fluid overload, and enable providers to manage their patients’ fluid balance with precision, control and ease.

Approximately 2% of the Israeli population is estimated to suffer from heart failure, while 90% of hospitalisations among heart failure patients are due to the signs and symptoms of fluid overload.

CHF Solutions chairman and CEO John Erb said: “CHF Solutions is committed to making ultrafiltration therapy available for patients throughout the world. Our partnership with SysteMedic demonstrates continued execution on that strategy.

“Subject to regulatory approval, we look forward to working with SysteMedic to make the simple, flexible and smart Aquadex SmartFlow system available to patients in Israel and Palestine, suffering from fluid overload due to heart failure, cardiovascular surgery and other critical care conditions.”
