Executive Summary

Today, mitral valve repair and replacement procedures involve opening the chest and stopping the heart. Hence, many patients who might otherwise benefit from therapy are excluded because they are either too ill or not ill enough to justify the risk. A percutaneous mitral valve replacement system in development from CardiAQ Valve Technologies intends to significantly reduce that risk by using a catheter to deliver a new mitral valve.
