Medtronic launches Profile 3D mitral valve repair device

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Medtronic has launched its Profile 3D annuloplasty ring in the US. Designed to repair failing mitral valves, the Profile 3D ring's shape is based on the saddle-shaped human mitral annulus – the ring of muscle surrounding the valve's leaflets. The Minneapolis, Minnesota company said that surgeons are increasingly opting to repair damaged or degenerated mitral valves rather than replacing them with prosthetic devices. 36,400 mitral repair procedures are estimated to take place in the US in 2008, accounting for approximately 40% of mitral valve procedures.
