Advancing Aortic Valve Repair
BioStable is committed to educating and growing the community of aortic valve repair surgeons by sharing their extensive experience with the HAART Aortic Annuloplasty Devices and how our products have expanded treatment options and simplified and standardized aortic valve repair.
The HAARTbeat articles have been created to provide insights into a comprehensive approach to aortic valve repair utilizing BioStable’s HAART Aortic Valve Repair Technologies.
Simplifying Aortic Valve Repair with Three-Dimensional Annuloplasty
The function of the HAART 300 Aortic Annuloplasty Device is to restore and maintain the normal three- dimensional shape of the aortic valve. This function is achieved by suturing the HAART 300 device to the annulus, just below the junction of the leaflets and the aortic wall, thereby forcing the annulus to conform to the shape of the device.
Simplifying BAV Repair with Three-Dimensional Annuloplasty
In BAV disease, there is no such thing as “normal” annular shape and the presentation of the anatomy can be highly variable. The design challenge for the HAART 200 was to produce a device with the best shape for reducing and stabilizing the annular dimensions for all classifications while facilitating and simplifying leaflet reconstruction.
Conditions Associated with Annular Dilatation and Aortic Insufficiency
The HAART Aortic Valve Repair Device reduces annular dilatation and recreates normal leaflet coaptation geometry through internal geometric ring annuloplasty. This new capability greatly expands the variety of treatable pathologies that cause aortic insufficiency and/or annular dilatation. No longer is aortic valve repair limited to patients with aortic root aneurysms.
We’ve worked closely with Dr. Scott Rankin to group the various valve disorders that have already been successfully treated with the HAART devices.
