Reliable view. Accurate valve deployment.
The cusp overlap technique isolates the non-coronary cusp to provide an accurate anatomical view to assess and achieve the target implant depth.
Valve deployment at the desired depth.
Positioning the flush port at
3 o’clock helps achieve commissural alignment that may facilitate future coronary access.1
The cusp overlap technique has been associated with single-digit pacemaker rates in several single-center and multicenter clinical studies. Large, prospective studies are being performed to confirm the risks and benefits of this new implant strategy.
