Optimum TAVI System
Unique natural valve geometry
Optimized geometry and leaflet dynamics mimic the natural valve and maximize hemodynamic performance.
NO suture holes in flexion zone
Having no suture holes in any moving part of the valve is essential for maximum durability. This includes the flexion zone, where disease begins.
Avoids balloon-expansion and the associated high pressure that may damage valve tissue. Strong enough to treat bicuspid patients.
LOWEST valve height
Lowest self-expanding valve height. Allows full access to coronary arteries. Reduces risk of conduction disturbances. Intra-annular leaflets. Designed for valve-in-valve implantation.
Innovative leaflet design
3 leaflets constructed from only ONE piece of tissue, for less sutures and increased durability. NO preformed (3D) leaflets for more natural motion.
Tall tissue skirt
Pliable porcine pericardial tissue skirt with greater sealing surface located directly behind leaflets, not below them, to better prevent paravalvular leak.
Bovine pericardial tissue leaflets and nitinol frame offer materials with established durability.
Advanced tissue treatments
Features tissue treatments for flexion and anti-calcification, for less valve stress and more durability.
Automatic axial alignment
The Optimum TAV reorients as it is deployed, resulting in complete axial alignment with the native valve.
The Optimum TAV is fully repositionable after partial deployment for precise placement.
The Optimum TAV may be fully recaptured and retrieved from patient.
Easier to maneuver challenging anatomy.
