Executive Summary

Miracor Medical Systems aims to improve post-PCI myocardial infusion to repair the damage caused by heart attacks. The company has developed minimally invasive technology to intermittently occlude the coronary sinus to block venous outflow from the heart. The resulting rise in pressure redistributes blood in the myocardium, where Miracor believes it will regenerate damaged tissue and lead to improved outcomes for patients.
