Epic™ Stented Tissue Valve with Linx™ AC Technology

Epic™ Stented Tissue Valve with Linx™ AC Technology

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Identical in design to the Biocor™ stented tissue valve, which delivers proven 20-year durability results1,2
  • Includes Linx AC Technology, which is designed to improve long-term performance and valve durability*
  • Three separate porcine leaflets are matched to optimize leaflet coaptation and reduce stress
  • The outflow edge is covered with a pericardial shield, providing a tissue-to-tissue interface to reduce the risk of abrasion
  • FlexFit™ mitral valve holder provides stent deflection (ratcheting), which reduces the potential for suture looping and maximizes visibility and access to the valve cuff
  • Low combined valve and holder height facilitates minimally invasive surgical procedures
  • Low-profile design reduces the risk of LV outflow tract obstruction
  • FlexFit stent reduces leaflet stress, adapts easily to annulus to enhance knot positioning and returns stent posts to original shape after deflection
  • Short 2 x 10-second rinse time
