A fundamental shift in the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure

ADHF is an episode of worsening heart failure symptoms in which patients experience difficulty breathing, fatigue, and swelling due to fluid back-up in the lungs and other parts of the body. Efficient and complete removal of excess fluid from the body’s tissues is vital to improve patient outcomes. WhiteSwell’s therapy is designed to leverage the impressive drainage capabilities of the lymphatic system to shift fluids out of the interstitial compartment, the fluid-filled spaces in connective tissue throughout the body, and into the vascular compartment (blood vessels). From there, excess fluid is removed through diuresis.

 

Leveraging the Lymphatic System to Treat ADHF 

 

WhiteSwell is a science-driven company dedicated to improving treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), a primary cause of repeat hospitalization and emergency room visits. The quest to address this significant clinical need led the WhiteSwell team to explore the therapeutic potential of the lymphatic system. WhiteSwell’s solution is uniquely designed to facilitate removal of fluid from both the interstitial and intravascular compartments.
