The HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Device has been designed specifically for use during the repair of bicuspid aortic valves. In bicuspid valve disease, two of the three aortic valve leaflets are fused together. The condition affects approximately 2% of the population, develops prior to birth, and is frequently associated with aortic aneurisms and accompanying aortic insufficiency.
The HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Device is designed to reduce annular dilatation while reorienting the two leaflets into a semicircular configurations. This orientation helps establish an effective coaptation geometry and simplifies the leaflet repair procedures required to restore valve competence.
