ACC 2021 Presentation Adds to Body of Evidence Supporting Nuwellis Ultrafiltration to Treat Patients with Heart Failure
The study showed 83% of patients treated with Aquadex therapy experienced clinical symptom improvement (50% moderate, 33% markedly) and significant weight decrease – the mean fluid removed was 9.40L. In addition, heart failure related readmissions were significantly reduced at 60 days (p=0.017) and moderately at 90 days (p= 0.094).
Findings from this study compared favorably to several randomized controlled trials on ultrafiltration as well as the ten-year results published by
- Is effective in driving fluid removal and weight loss in ADHF patients
- Decreases heart failure readmissions
- Has no significant impact on renal function
“We saw outstanding results with Aquadex in our first year of aquapheresis ultrafiltration, which is particularly meaningful considering the disease state of the patients,” said Dr.
“Nuwellis has a strong history in the heart failure space, and this data makes it evident why,” said
