Inca PV Loop System

Real-time, Cardiac Hemodynamic Monitoring Using PV Loops

As the exclusive North American distributor of CD Leycom®’s Inca® Pressure-Volume (PV) Loop System, Millar offers a complete clinical PV loop solution for cardiac function analysis. The Inca PV Loop System enables real-time hemodynamic monitoring by analyzing the pressure-volume relationship, cardiac contractile state and intraventricular dyssynchrony from a single PV loop catheter during cardiac catheterization procedures.

Pressure-volume loops allow clinicians to:

  • View instant, real-time images of cardiac function and performance
  • Gain access to more than 60 data parameters
  • Analyze systolic and diastolic disorders in real-time

Inca PV Loop System

Understand Cardiovascular Hemodynamic Measurements

The Inca® intracardiac analyzer is the world’s only clinically approved intracardiac pressure-volume analysis device. The Inca® delivers greater insight into a patient’s cardiac function, providing clinicians with:

  • Real-time intra-beat and beat-to-beat intra-ventricular measurement of cardiac function and performance which can provide guidance for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
  • Real-time operator independent measurement of intra-ventricular mechanical dyssynchrony, a prerequisite for CRT and Heart Failure diagnosis
  • Reliable detection and quantification of Heart Failure conditions such as Systolic/Diastolic Heart Failure with low and normal ejection fraction (HFnEF)
  • Accurate acquisition, display, analysis and storage of cardiac function data.

Cath Lab Integration

Due to its compact design, the Inca® can be seamlessly integrated into an existing cardiac catheterization lab, hybrid cath lab or operating theater.  When combined with an optional cart, the Inca® provides the mobile flexibility needed to move between multiple cath labs at a single facility.

The Inca® ships with a medical, grade touch screen PC with the ConductNT software pre-installed. The ConductNT software provides hardware control, real-time data display and acquisition plus real-time analysis.  Additional features include automatic calibration and automatic calculation and display of an intraventricular segmental dyssynchrony index.

PV Loop Catheters

Millar offers sterile, single-use CD Leycom® PV loop catheters in a 4F version with no lumen and a 7F version with a lumen for use with a 0.025” guidewire.  The catheters are offered in several electrode spacing configurations to provide an optimal fit to the patient ventricle.
