Abstract

During the past decade transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has revolutionized our approach to heart valve disease. Although largely applied to patients with calcific aortic valve stenosis, there is an unmet clinical need to also treat patients with aortic valve insufficiency in patients with non-calcific aortic valve disorders. The following Techno-College tutorial demonstrates our pre-clinical experience with a novel non-occlusive, self-homing TAVI system, developed with Strait Access Technologies, that we hope will improve outcomes for treatment of non-calcific aortic valve insufficiency.
