Transcatheter Technologies GMBH

Truly repositionable transcatheter aortic valve implant

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

A major limitation of existing transcatheter aortic heart valves is that they are unable to be repositioned once implanted. For these devices, the valve is mounted in a metal stent that contains a balloon, which is inflated once the valve is placed. The valve is then anchored to the heart wall. Transcatheter Technologies GMBH believes its fully repositionable Trinity valve will solve this shortcoming. Once Trinity is initially placed, cardiac surgeons or interventionalists can evaluate the valve function to determine whether the valve needs to be repositioned, retrieved or kept in the same position. Moreover, it allows for a controlled positioning, by slowly opening the valve stent, for a likely first-attempt correct placement.
