What is a Magna Ease pericardial valve?

What is a Magna Ease pericardial valve?

The Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT Magna Ease pericardial bioprosthesis is intended for use in patients whose aortic valvular disease is sufficiently advanced to warrant replacement of their natural valve with a prosthetic one.

What is a Magna valve?

The Magna Mitral Ease valve is built upon the proven, time-tested PERIMOUNT valve design, with unique design elements including: Mathematically modeled, bioengineered design. Intended to optimize implantability, hemodynamics and long-term durability. Flexible cobalt-chromium alloy stent.

What is a trifecta tissue heart valve?

The Trifecta aortic bioprosthesis is a stented bovine pericardial tissue heart valve created exclusively for the aortic position. It is designed for supra-annular placement. Supra-annular placement of an aortic bioprosthesis is one approach to optimize the haemodynamic result of an aortic valve replacement.

What is a Magna Ease valve made of?

The Edwards Pericardial Aortic Bioprosthesis, Model 11000A, is a stented trileaflet valve comprised of RESILIA bovine pericardial tissue that is mounted on a flexible frame. The valve is stored under dry packaging conditions and consequently does not require rinsing prior to implantation.

What is a pericardial tissue heart valve?

The pericardial heart valve was invented by Marian Ionescu, a British surgeon working at the General Infirmary in Leeds, England. He created this artificial bioprosthetic heart valve as a three-cusp structure made of chemically treated bovine pericardium attached to a Dacron cloth-covered titanium frame.

What is a Perceval valve?

Perceval is the 100% sutureless valve for aortic valve replacement. It is designed to be highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of surgical approaches, including traditional and minimally invasive.

What is an epic valve?

The Epic™ valve is indicated for patients requiring replacement of a diseased, damaged, or malfunctioning native aortic and/or mitral heart valve. It may also be used as a replacement for a previously implanted aortic and/or mitral prosthetic heart valve.

Do they still use pig valves?

Porcine valves last an average of ten years; give or take a few years. But, some have lasted much longer – up to seventeen years! Typically, pig valve replacements wear out faster in younger, more active individuals.

How long does a pericardial tissue heart valve last?

Tissue Valve Tissue valves can last 10 to 20 years, and usually don’t require the long-term use of medication. For a young person with a tissue valve replacement, the need for additional surgery or another valve replacement later in life is highly likely.

What is Edwards Magna valve?

The Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT Magna Mitral Ease heart valve is a pericardial tissue-based bioprosthetic device for patients requiring replacement of diseased mitral heart valves. It is based on the Edwards PERIMOUNT mitral valve design.

What is a Magna heart valve?

Designed for the treatment of mitral valve disease, one of the most common forms of heart valve disease in the world, the PERIMOUNT Magna mitral valve is a pericardial tissue-based bioprosthetic device that replaces a patient’s diseased mitral valve.

What is a pericardial valve?

The pericardial valve is a biomechanically engineered valve that can be described as a mechanical valve with a biologic component. In this way, it differs from a porcine (pig) stented valve which incorporates a natural pig’s valve.
