An intravascular cooling system was developed to provide localized cooling directly to organs. Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to reduce both ischemic and reperfusion injury related damage in both animal models and clinically for a range of organs including the heart, brain, and kidneys [1–4]. Cooling may ultimately aid in reducing damage from heart attack and stroke as well as problems associated with other organs.
