PORTICO'S UNIQUE PROPERTIES
The Portico transcatheter aortic valve has unique nitinol properties—the first TAVI valve that can be fully repositioned, recaptured, and retrieved prior to full deployment.5 Moreover, Portico’s unconstricted valve leaflet opening performs more like a natural heart valve.6
Other characteristics of the Portico transcatheter aortic valve include:
- Bovine pericardium leaflets and Porcine pericardium sealing cuff treated with Linx anti-calcification treatment
- Nonflared annulus portion of the stent frame
- Optimal valve height
Aortic valve replacement with Portico also features minimal protrusion of the valve into the left ventricular outflow tract.
