The mechanical heart valve CardiaMed is a valve with a new innovative design. It has some distinguishing features like:
The occluder is made as two leaflets that pivot from open position to closed position.
The leaflets and valve housing are made of monolithic isotropic pyrolitic carbon. The sewing cuff is made of special warp knitted polyester fabric.
The valve housing is reinforced with a stiffening ring made of titanium alloy
The leaflets rotate around the central axis of the valve housing without restricting the rotating blood flow and eliminate the localization of all stasis zones in the bloodstream.
The valve generates the swirling of blood flow in the heart chambers thus improving the washing of inner cardiac structures.
The valve leaflets have a special aerodynamic shape for:
- Creating smoothly spreading blood flow
- Prevention of blood flow turbulence
- Speeding valve closure and opening
The valve generates a controlled regurgitant blood flow for proper washing of its hinge mechanism
The valve has a barrier projecting above the sewing cuff, that protects valve orifice from pannus ingrowth that covers sewing cuff
The valves are intended for aortic and mitral position. The tissue annulus diameters of the valve range from 17 to 33 mm. The valves are supplied with the sewing cuff of various shapes intended for the standard, intra-annular and supra-annular position of implantation.
