Harpoon is a minimally invasive surgery device that complements Edwards pipeline of transcatheter mitral and septal valve repair and replacement technologies, which now includes at least six technologies at various stages of development, and is one of the company's top R&D priorities.
Starts & Stops is a regular feature highlighting Medtech Insight editors' picks of noteworthy medtech clinical trial announcements, initiations, completions, and suspensions each month. This month's edition, covering the period between mid-July and mid-August, includes trials from the biggest medtech players, some start-ups, and companies of every size in between.
The TRILUMINATE trial will evaluate safety and effectiveness of its Tricuspid Valve Repair System for treating symptomatic moderate-to-severe tricuspid regurgitation. The device is similar to Abbott's successful MitraClip catheter-based device for treating mitral regurgitation.
The global market for products treating heart valve disease is expected to exceed $8bn by 2021, driven largely by the rising number of elderly patients with cardiovascular disease, obesity and growing prevalence of diabetes. This, in turn, is fueling significant innovation in minimally invasive techniques, particularly in the leading area of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), but also in transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVrep) systems, both of which offer patients quicker recovery times, less discomfort and greater safety compared to traditional surgical heart valve repair and replacement. This feature looks more closely at the competitive landscape and dynamics of these two fast-growing market segments, as well as gives insight into what the users – the physicians – think of these technologies.
