Kuwata, Shingo; Taramasso, Maurizio; Guidotti, Andrea; Nietlispach, Fabian; Maisano, Francesco (2017). Evaluation of Valtech's transcatheter mitral valve repair device. Expert Review of Medical Devices, 14(3):189-195.

Abstract

Functional mitral regurgitation is a debilitating condition, related to worsening of functional capacity and heart failure symptomatology. Cardioband (Valtech Cardio, Or Yehuda, Israel) is a novel technology designed for transcatheter repair of the mitral valve in the treatment of functional MR. Areas covered: A brief summary to direct the reader to important further reading, relevant websites; www.valtechcardio.com . An article about this device, relevant websites; www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed using search word 'Cardioband'. Expert commentary: This device has been designed to be completely implantable percutaneously in a closed beating heart fashion. The adjustability features under the beating heart and guided by echocardiography allow to provide a tailored therapy to each particular mitral valve and regurgitation condition.
