Fields of application

CytoSorb Therapy can potentially help in the following clinical settings:

CytoSorb therapy* is designed to help manage the serious complications caused by excessively high levels of cytokines that can lead to a hyperinflammatory condition. This constellation of life-threatening complications is found in a variety of clinical situations, as systemic inflammation is a common feature in many critical acute conditions. An excessive systemic immune response can lead to shock, multiple organ failure, and death in many of these syndromes.

Apart from the use in patients with septic shock and vasoplegic shock in the context of non-infectious triggers (e.g. cardiac surgery patients) there are published data on the use of CytoSorb in: 

CytoSorbents focuses on two major areas of application:

  • Septic shock
  • Vasoplegic shock in the context of non-infectious triggers (e.g., cardiac surgery patients)

Other areas of application where systemic hyperinflammation exists are:

  • Polytrauma and severe burns
  • Severe acute pancreatitis
  • Different types of liver failure
  • Severe cardiogenic shock

Antithrombotic removal

  • Ticagrelor/rivaroxaban removal during cardiopulmonary bypass to reduce the bleeding risk
