We developed the alfapump® system to help patients suffering with refractory ascites avoid abdominal swelling and its accompanying complications. The alfapump® is a fully implantable battery-operated pump for the management of ascites.
Helps patients to live a more normal life, freeing them from repeated hospital visits for paracentesis
Patients feel better because they are no longer weighed down by large volumes of ascites and the become more mobile and active
Your doctor can program the pump to meet your individual requirements and set it in accordance with your daily routine, for example to adapt to your work or sleeping pattern
Many doctors and patients have reported that the alfapump system helps improve quality of life, which we consider a giant leap forward
