“Valve-in-valve” approach to mitral regurgitation

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Just as people improve their vision by wearing glasses or contact lenses instead of repairing or replacing their eyes, a mitral valve prosthesis from Israeli-based MitrAssist Medical Ltd. neither repairs nor replaces damaged mitral valves in the heart, but rather it augments and enhances native valve function. The company’s implant is placed on top of the native valve and anchored securely. This “valve-in-valve” approach is designed to prevent leakage and restore normal blood flow.
