September 19, 2016 — Valtech Cardio Ltd. announced that it will present the first-in-man data for its Cardioband Tricuspid (TR) system at PCR London Valves 2016, Sept. 18-20. In addition, updated two-year follow-up results of the multi-center Cardioband Mitral study will be presented at the meeting.

“I am pleased to share my first experience with Cardioband Tricuspid, which shows that it is feasible to perform a successful trans-venous surgical like annuloplasty procedure for the treatment of TR.” said Francesco Maisano, M.D, chairman and professor of cardiovascular surgery at The University Hospital of Zurich who successfully performed the first implantation of Cardioband Tricuspid. “The device has the potential to reproduce surgical standards, although our experience is still limited at the moment.”

A Valtech symposium titled, “Cardioband: Clinical Reality for Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Repair,” will be led by Eberhard Grube, M.D., Ph.D., (University of Bonn, Germany) and Karl-Heinz Kuck, M.D. (Asklepios Klinic St. Georg, Hamburg, Germany) Tuesday, Sept. 20. Panelists will discuss how they are successfully using Cardioband to apply the surgical gold standard in a transfemoral approach.

An accepted talk, “Direct annuloplasty - Cardioband in tricuspid regurgitation,” was presented by Prof. K.H. Kuck (Asklepios Klinic St. Georg, Hamburg, Germany) as part of the “innovation in percutaneous tricuspid valve intervention” session Sunday, Sept. 18.

An accepted abstract, "One Year Follow-up Results of Mitral Valve Transcatheter Annuloplasty System for Mitral Reconstruction Multicentre Trial,” will be presented by Prof. R. S. von Bardeleben (University of medicine Mainz Germany) as part of the "Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Interventions" session held Monday, Sept. 19.

An additional accepted abstract, "Cardioband implantation to treat recurrent mitral regurgitation after MitraClip therapy,” will be presented by Dr. M. Taramasso (University Hospital of Zurich) as part of the "Percutaneous mitral therapies" session Tuesday, Sept. 20.

(B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL lithoplasty.

(B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification (double-headed arrow) in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL (inset; note the cavitation bubbles generated by IVL [black arrows]). (D) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (white arrow in C) demonstrate multiple calcium fractures and large acute luminal gain. (E) Angiography demonstrates complete stent expansion with the semicompliant stent balloon (inset) without the need for high-pressure noncompliant balloon inflation. (F) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-stenting and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in E) demonstrate further fracture displacement (arrow), with additional increase in the acute area gain (5.17 mm2), resulting in full stent expansion and minimal malapposition.
