Images or a digital twin mitral valve of a patient created from cardiac ultrasound that were used to perform a virtual surgical procedure to test how the intervention would impact the patient prior to actually performing the procedure. The right image shows color coding for sheer stresses on the valve leaflets before and after the virtual surgery. The right image shows the model quantitation of leaflet coaptation at peak systole prior to the the virtual surgery. Read the original article in Plos One https:/

The Xeltis synthetic polymer restorative pulmonary valve is implanted surgically and acts as a scaffold for the patient's own cells to proliferate. The valve and conduit then bioresorbs over time, leaving behind a new valve made from the patient's own cells. The hope is this will reduce or eliminate the need for numerous repeat surgeries as a pediatric patient grows.
