Off-pump transapical mitral valved stent implantation
- Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein
- Georg Lutter
The aim of this project is to develop and verify a new mitral valved stent, fully adapted to the anatomy of mitral regurgitation of diseased hearts by means of a transapical mitral-valve stent implantation in the beating heart without using a heart-lung machine. Focus of this project will be the evaluation in the mitral regurgitation animal model. The design of the stent is supposed to be further developed for the mitral position, so that a greater match with the natural anatomy is attained with a new oval shape. In addition to the apical fixation, another fixation system shall also be developed. The additional anchorage shall ensure the correct anatomical position of the stent.
