Why perform a transseptal puncture?
The Kapsus device is intended for cardiology procedures that require a transseptal puncture. The transseptal puncture approach entails the catheterization of the Right Atrium with a subsequent penetration of the Septum, which is safer than approaching the Left Atrium through the Left Ventricle. Transseptal punctures can be performed for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes with minimal risk when done accurately. However, potential complications include aortic root puncture or tamponade.

Diagnostic use:
Pressure measurement in the Left Atrium
Left Ventricular access through the Mitral Valve

Therapeutic use:
Mitral valvuloplasty
Electrophysiological intervention for catheter ablation
Paravalvular leakage
Transfemoral mitral valve procedure e.g. Mitra Clip

How does Kapsus perform differently than other devices?
The Kapsus takes advantage of multiple entry points and it relies on reproducable puncture site location methods. Its housing ensures consistency between procedures while managing variability between patients.

The Kapsus is a price point option for transseptal puncture with an emphasis on consistency and safety.


The Kapsus device for Transseptal Puncture is an investigational device
