Profile 3D Ring

Heart Valve Disease

Profile 3D™ Annuloplasty System

Overview

When mitral valves become diseased, they can lose their natural shape. This prevents the valve from closing properly. The Profile 3D™ Annuloplasty System uses fully rigid rings to repair the mitral valve annulus (opening), restoring the valve to its natural shape.

Key Features

Restores Natural Shape
A normal mitral valve has a saddle shape. The Profile 3D annuloplasty ring design is saddle-shaped like the mitral valve annulus.

Ring Design
Profile 3D annuloplasty rings are fully rigid. The rings are designed to restore the natural shape of the mitral valve annulus.

Placement

The device is not shown actual size. Other sizes may be available. Valve shown is a size 26 mm.

Size

The device is not shown actual size. Other sizes may be available. Ring shown is a size 34 mm.

Height 0.81" (20.5 mm)

Profile 3D™ Annuloplasty System

The Profile 3D Ring may be used to repair your heart's natural valve when it has become diseased or weakened by age. (An annuloplasty ring is made of durable artificial materials.)

The Profile 3D Ring should not be used in patients with heavily calcified valves, valvular retraction with severely reduced mobility, and active bacterial endocarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart caused by bacteria).

Valve repair procedures may include, but are not limited to the following risks:

  • Blood clot formation on or around the valve. These blood clots may break loose and travel in the bloodstream (thromboembolism/thrombosis).
  • Damage to red blood cells (hemolysis).
  • Any problem with the ring that causes narrowing of the valve opening (stenosis).
  • Small amounts of blood leaking through the valve opening even after it closes.
  • Abnormal heart beat (dysrhythmia).
  • Inflammation of the lining of the heart (endocarditis)
  • Anticoagulant-related bleeding or hemorrhage.

This list is not inclusive of all risks. Talk to your physician regarding more information about valve repair surgery.

CAUTION: Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
