SMT’s Hydra Aortic Valve Gains CE Mark
India-based Sahajanand Medical Technology’s Hydra transcatheter aortic valve replacement device has received a CE mark.
The expandable device has been approved for patients with narrowing of the aortic valve. The Hydra includes a mechanism for retrieving the device during deployment to allow for more precise placement.
The valve comes in three sizes, 22mm, 26mm and 30mm, to accommodate the different diameters of the fibrous rings at the front and right of the aortic valve.
