The Cardioband System –
A surgical solution implanted percutaneously.
The Cardioband System offers reconstruction of the mitral valve by direct annuloplasty delivered transfemorally with no need for open-heart surgery. Cardioband is echo and fluoroscopy guided and is anatomically fitted.
- Transfemoral transseptal venous access (no interaction in the left ventricle) – best for safety.
- Supraannular fixation as in surgery.
- Significant reduction of annular dimensions – device enables reduction of up to size 28 surgical ring.
- Preserves the native anatomy to keep future cardiac intervention options open.
