St. Jude Begins Clinical Trial for Aortic Valve

St. Jude Medical has chosen physicians to lead the clinical trial for the company’s transcatheter aortic valve. The trial will study the safety and efficacy of the valve in patients with severe aortic stenosis. The trial will evaluate two delivery systems, the transfemoral and the transapical systems, both of which are designed for easier deployment and retrieval of the valve.
