The HeartNet is implanted through an incision in the left side of the chest. Implantation is guided by an X-ray camera projecting images on an operating room screen. The tool designed to introduce the HeartNet into the chest cavity contains a number of "fingers" that spread the mesh around the heart, and then retract once the device is properly placed. The procedure can typically be completed in 90 minutes or less.

"The heart continues to beat while the device is implanted, and the anticipated recovery period is expected to be shorter."

The Wayne State University School of Medicine was selected as one of 30 international sites for a clinical research study of HeartNet. Oakwood Healthcare System is one of the School of Medicine's health affiliates and has one of the largest open heart programs in metropolitan Detroit, making Oakwood the ideal location for leading-edge clinical trials and studies such as this.

The HeartNet was invented and manufactured by Paracor Medical Inc., based in Sunnyvale, Calif. Paracor plans to enroll patients at up to 30 U.S. centers under an investigational device exemption that has been reviewed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center (OHMC) in Dearborn has 620 beds, and is a full-service teaching hospital that has served southeast Michigan for more than 50 years. OHMC offers state-of-the art emergency medicine, general medicine and surgery, outpatient surgery, diagnostic imaging, labor and delivery/neonatal intensive care, pediatrics, intensive care and coronary units. This center is also the hub for Oakwood's centers of exc
