HEMODYNAMICS

Evolut TAVR Platform
Supra-annular, self-expanding valve design delivers better hemodynamics1 — that go above and beyond.

EOA MATTERS

A large EOA (effective orifice area) reduces the likelihood of PPM (patient-prosthesis mismatch). Choose Evolut™ TAVR for larger EOAs — allowing patients to maintain a higher exercise capacity.1,2

EOA Matters Comparison

SUPRA-ANNULAR VALVES HAVE LARGER EOAs3

  • A large EOA may improve activity tolerance4 which may allow a faster return to activity.1,2,4

  • A large EOA helps avoid PPM, which correlates to better long-term survival.5

  • A large EOA provides improved flow, less resistance, and better long-term durability.5,6

  • Reduce stress on leaflets12

High gradients

  • Indicate a greater risk of mortality12

Increased risk of valve deterioration in patients with moderate/severe PPM6

Evolut TAV has lower PPM rates than Sapien™* 3.14

WHAT IS PATIENT PROSTHESIS MISMATCH (PPM)?

PPM occurs when the effective orifice area (EOA) of a normally functioning prosthesis is too small in relation to the patient’s body size.15
