TheraSorb® – LDL adsorbers

– LDL adsorbers

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 an anti-microbial storage 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 one patient. The treatment is well tolerated due to the low bradykinin release, which otherwise can cause severe hypotension. Furthermore, the low extracorporeal volume of about 180 mL allows for the treatment of patients with a low body weight in double-needle mode.
TheraSorb LDL removal is a highly selective and acrylamide-free procedure.


Kits are not CE-marked medical devices, but are a sales unit containing a pair of individually packed adsorbers and their accessories (e.g. patient chip card, adsorber holder).


– LDL and TheraSorb
– LDL pro adsorbers are intended to be used for immunoadsorption treatment of diseases where LDL or lipoprotein (a) contributes to the onset of a disease or its progression, for instance in, but not limited to:
  • familial hypercholesterolemia (e.g. in case of a familial defective apolipoprotein B-100)
  • acute forms of LDL hypercholesterolemia, especially in case of coronary heart disease
  • isolated elevated lipoprotein (a) with progression of coronary heart disease.1
