Heart Valve Technology

This channel includes news and new device innovations about heart valve technologies, including the aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonic valve, and tricuspid valve. This includes information on transcatheter valve technologies like transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR, or implantation TAVI), transcatheter mitral valve repair or replacement (TMVR), transcatheter and surgical valve repairs, and surgical replacement valves. Newer devices are now being used for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair replacement (TTVR).

Abbott Tendyne TMVR, TMVI system received European CE mark clearance in January 2020. The Abbott Tendyne transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) system uses an anchor attached to the apex of the heart with a whether line attached to the valve. This helps to keep the valve anchored in the mitral annulus and prevent embolization. This anchor system was used because, unlike the aortic valve, the mitral valve has a very thin landing zone to secure the valve. Prevents LVOT obstruction.
