Where we come from and what we do

The invention of occluders in the 1970s and the successful minimal-invasive implantation method, led to a number of further developments based on this and new inventions in the field of cardiovascular implants.

In 2003, the engineers of Occlutech, in close cooperation with Prof. Dr. Hans Figulla of Jena’s University Clinic, developed a completely new generation of occluders, of which the innovative nitinol wire mesh requires a considerably lower input of material. This, in turn, facilitates a considerably higher flexibility, adaptability and body-compatibility. A unique feature is that these occluders are not only be used merely in “normal” conditions, but also in difficult anatomical or disease-related situations.

Continuous cooperation with leading heart surgeons is of particular value, since it allows the further development of the occluder for different fields of application. The experience gained from clinical practice is directly applied to work in our Research and Development Department. As a result of this, new fields of application are being opened up, new forms are being generated, new materials are being used and the production process is continuously being optimized.
