09:16 EDTEWEdwards receives CE Mark for advances SAPIEN 3 value
Edwards Lifesciences announced that it has received CE Mark in Europe and is initiating the launch of its most advanced transcatheter aortic valve, the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve. The SAPIEN 3 valve builds upon Edwards' decades of experience in the development of tissue heart valves, and the proven benefits of the Edwards SAPIEN valves. The new valve has an outer skirt -- a cuff of fabric surrounding the valve frame -- providing a seal to address paravalvular leak. The effectiveness of this solution is supported by the limited clinical experience, as detailed in two first-in-human feasibility studies, which demonstrated that significant paravalvular leak was eliminated during transcatheter aortic valve implantation. The SAPIEN 3 valve is the only commercial transcatheter heart valve that can be delivered through a low-profile 14 French expandable sheath, which has shown through early clinical experience a low rate of complications. The valve can be implanted through multiple approaches: transfemoral, transapical or transaortic. Once implanted, the discreet valve anchors in the aortic annulus. In the United States, the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is an investigational device being studied in the PARTNER II Trial and is not yet available for sale in the country.
