A novel treatment option

If you suffer from the symptoms of heart failure, and the medications you have been prescribed are not enough to help you return to the activities you enjoy, Barostim may be the right therapeutic option for you.

These effects may reduce the heart’s workload and help it pump more efficiently, helping to relieve the symptoms of heart failure.
