The TheraSorb
®
LDL therapy system consists of two reusable adsorbers, available in different sizes, that remove LDL cholesterol, Lp(a) and VLDL from the patient´s blood. The sepharose volume constituting the adsorbers is 100 mL for the LDL pro adsorber and 200 mL for the LDL adsorber.
The plasma volumes processed during an LDL apheresis treatment can be adjusted to the patient´s need. Between the treatments, both adsorbers are stored in a preservation solution and must be kept at 2–8 °C.
Up to 20 treatments can be performed with a single pair of either LDL pro or LDL adsorbers for
