NeoChord DS1000

The NeoChord DS1000 is a single-use hand-held medical device designed to enable doctors to perform minimally invasive mitral valve repair on the heart. Through a 2 or 3-inch incision, the NeoChord repairs damaged tendons while the heart is beating and deploys sutures for a streamlined repair.

Designed by Dan Darst, Lee Macklem, Eric Krause, Pete Madson and Bob Worrell of Worrell Design Inc.; John Zentgraf, John Seaberg and Arun Saini of NeoChord Inc.; and Dr. Giovanni Speziali and Dr. Richard Daly of Mayo Clinic
