Contour 3D Annuloplasty Ring

Surgical Valve Repair

Overview

The Contour 3D annuloplasty ring is a three-dimensional, anatomically shaped remodeling ring for treatment of functional tricuspid valve disease.


Indications

The Contour 3D ring is indicated for the reconstruction and/or remodeling of pathological tricuspid valves.


Product Details

A REMODELING RING WITH A THREE-DIMENSIONAL, ANATOMICAL SHAPE

2D shape, 3D curvature - Design is based on CT data from functional human tricuspid valves.1

Low Profile, incomplete ring is designed to avoid interference with the heart’s conduction system.

Contour 3d Tricuspid Annuloplasty Ring

Septal Lateral compression is incorporated into the ring to address annular dilation.

The Contour 3D annuloplasty ring offers the following benefits:

  • Open design helps avoid interference with the heart’s conduction system
  • Incorporates septal lateral compression to address annular dilation
  • Ring profile height is 3.3 mm, 15% lower than the Edwards Lifescience's MC3 Ring2
