AltaValve, 4C Medical’s Novel Transcatheter Mitral Regurgitation Device Highlighted at TCT 2019

September 30, 2019

AltaValve, for mitral regurgitation, was featured at Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2019, on Sept 25-29 in San Francisco, CA.

AltaValve is a Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR) device designed to broaden the treatable patient population: the device’s supra-annular fit and atrial-only fixation bypass the concerns of anchoring and fixation difficulties present in current TMVR technologies. Moreover, AltaValve leaves the left ventricle geometry intact and minimizes the risks of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction and damage to the left ventricle.

“AltaValve is the only device that truly differentiated itself in a crowded TMVR market. Delivered transseptally, AltaValve can be implanted using a very simple procedure, suitable for the vast majority of patients suffering of MR. Due to its unique supra-annular design, more patients will qualify for treatment with AltaValve. More importantly, AltaValve has the potential to be the only TMVR that could be implanted in patients with previously failed mitral edge-to-edge repair,” said Philippe Généreux, MD, Co-Director of the Structural Heart Program at the Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute of Morristown Medical Center (Morristown, NJ). “AltaValve is truly an innovative, scalable technology that answers a real unmet need. It has the potential to become the TAVR of the mitral space.”

Dr. Généreux highlighted AltaValve in the presentation titled “AltaValve – Device Description, Results, and Ongoing Studies” which was part of the TMVR Overview and Principle Devices session.

“It’s no easy task to redefine solutions for structural heart disease, but we’re doing it. We’ve continued our commitment to improve quality of life for patients with mitral regurgitation (MR),” said Robert Thatcher, CEO of 4C Medical Technologies, Inc.
