Patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis who received a novel self-expanding transcatheter heart valve had improved outcomes, according to results presented at EuroPCR.

“The Edwards Centera valve demonstrates extremely favorable early clinical safety and performance outcomes in the high surgical risk [transcatheter aortic valve replacement] population,” Didier Tchétché, MD, an interventional cardiologist at Clinique Pasteur in Toulouse, France, said in a press release. “In addition to excellent patient outcomes, the valve also offers several unique features and an innovative tissue design, all of which simplify the procedure for clinicians.”
