The Profile 3D™ Annuloplasty Ring is a fully rigid remodeling ring with a physiologic mitral valve shape. It can be used to treat functional mitral valve diseases, such as ischemic mitral regurgitation and dilated cardiomyopathy.
We designed the Profile 3D™ Rigid Annuloplasty Ring, using a sophisticated computerized anatomical model. The result? A fully rigid remodeling ring with a unique asymmetrical 3D design based on scientific evidence, engineered to maintain the anterior and posterior dimensions of the mitral annulus
The mitral annulus is a dynamic saddle-shaped structure with the maximum height of the saddle in the middle of the annulus’s anterior part and another rise along the posterior leaflet1.
The Profile 3D™ ring design provides a 25% anterior curvature and 15% posterior curvature1.
Its knit fabric and titanium/silicone core enable confident, secure suturing.
The Profile 3D™ Mitral Annuloplasty Ring is Developed with Drs. J.Gorman, R.Gorman, M.Acker and J.Bavaria at HUP (The Hospitals at the University of Pennsylvania), based upon significant scientific evidence to offer:
