The next evolution in TAVR.THE MERIDIAN II® VALVE
The Meridian® II Valve is designed for procedural flexibility and valve durability.
Reposition the valve and assess full hemodynamic function prior to final valve release.
Durability by Design
Achieve natural leaflet coaptation and reduced commissure stress, regardless of native annulus shape, through an independent flexible tissue wire form.
Retrieve the valve prior to final release for better outcomes and lower complications.
Avoid surrounding cardiac structures to mitigate rhythm disturbances and enable future coronary interventions.
HLT TAVR Procedure Overview
The Meridian® II Valve is designed to restore normal blood flow across the diseased aortic valve and reduce symptoms of the disease. Since patient anatomies and the aortic stenosis disease process vary, the system is uniquely designed allowing physicians to reposition or fully retrieve the valve to optimize the implant position. These video animations illustrate the procedure.
Physicians can assess valve performance prior to final valve release, and have the option to retrieve or reposition if necessary.
This animation illustrates how to implant the Meridian® Valve.
The procedure includes crossing the diseased aortic valve, positioning the self-expanding support structure in the annulus, inverting the valve and exposing the tissue leaflets for valve function.
This animation illustrates how the Meridian® Valve is repositioned by withdrawing it into catheter, repositioning it at the annular level and continuing with procedure.
This animation illustrates how the Meridian II Valve is completely withdrawn into the catheter and removed.
