The Regent™ aortic mechanical valve offers surgeon-friendly implantability, featuring a low valve implant height that helps ensure coronary ostia clearance. Two distinct cuff types—FlexCuff™ or Standard Cuff—provide you with different options. The Regent™ valve features exceptional hemodynamics in small aortic root patients.1*
Because prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) can be problematic in the aortic position, Abbott designed the Regent™ valve specifically to avoid this issue. The orifice-to-annulus ratio of the Regent™ valve ensures large effective orifice areas (EOAs) and reduces PPM.2
The Regent™ valve shows low thromboembolism, thrombosis, and bleeding over a wide international normalized ratio (INR) range, making this valve an excellent choice.3-6

Indication for Use
The SJM Regent™ Mechanical Heart Valve is intended for use as a replacement valve in patients with a diseased, damaged, or malfunctioning aortic valve. This device may also be used to replace a previously implanted aortic prosthetic heart valve.
The SJM Regent™ Mechanical Heart Valve is contraindicated for individuals unable to tolerate anticoagulation therapy.
Potential Adverse Events
Complications associated with replacement mechanical heart valves include, but are not limited to:
hemolysis; infections; thrombus; or thromboembolism; valve dehiscence; unacceptable hemodynamic performance; hemorrhagic complications secondary to anticoagulation therapy; prosthetic failure; and heart failure or death.
Any of these complications may require reoperation or explantation of the device.
