Aortic Valve Disease
“Aortic valve insufficiency is the most common valvular heart disease, affecting more than 2.5 million adults world-wide.”[Read more]
HAART Aortic Valve Repair Technologies
Resize the aortic valve annulus to reduce dilatation,
Reshape the aortic valve to restore more normal, three-dimensional coaptation geometry,
Stabilize the aortic valve to reduce the risk of recurrent annular dilatation.
HAART 300 Aortic Annuloplasty Device
The HAART 300 Aortic Annuloplasty Device was designed from mathematical reconstructions of high resolution, computed tomographic angiogram (CTA) images of normal aortic valves.
HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Device
The HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Device has been designed specifically for use during the repair of bicuspid aortic valves.
(The HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Device is not available for sale outside of the U.S.)
Standard Annuloplasty Technique
Correct device sizing is determined from leaflet free-edge lengths to restore appropriate annular dimensions and commissure positioning for the patient’s individual leaflet anatomy.
