We're designing access and affordability into our products to reach one in three people every year by 2030

For patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) provides an alternative, minimally invasive treatment option for people living with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis who are not candidates for open-heart surgery due to age, frailty, or other conditions that make surgery too risky. There are multiple factors, health conditions, indications and screenings that are utilized to determine if a patient is an eligible candidate for TAVI. The STS score allows physicians to calculate a patient’s risk of mortality and morbidities for a TAVI procedure. It is one of several sources of information in the decision-making and eligibility process. 

TAVI with the Portico™ valve can offer several key benefits. It is less invasive than open-heart surgery, with minimal scarring and a shorter hospital stay and recovery time.

Once the Portico valve has been implanted, patients may experience immediate improvement in quality of life or may feel better gradually. Improvement may include:

  • Increased physical activity
  • Increased energy
  • Decreased or no chest pain
  • Decreased or no shortness of breath
  • Decrease severity of all or most previous symptoms

For educational purposes only; not real patient cases.

  • Quality of Life and Recovery Time

    John, 84 years, male

    John had severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and an STS score of 8%. He was experiencing chronic fatigue and had limited activity due to chronic back pain. Since John lives independently, his doctor determined John is a good candidate for TAVI when considering his recovery time for TAVI vs. open heart surgery.

  • History of Cancer, Radiation and Kidney Disease

    Samuel, 73 years, male

    Samuel had severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and an STS score of 10%. He experienced symptoms of aortic stenosis after physical exertion like yard work or working in his garage. Samuel is retired and lives with his wife.  Due to his history of cancer, radiation and kidney disease, his doctors determined he’d be a good candidate for TAVI. 

  • Small Valve Annulus

    Nancy, 79 years, female

    Nancy had severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and an STS score of 8.5%. She felt shortness of breath and weak when walking her dog. She loves spending time with her grandchildren but had been feeling too tired and weak to meet with them. Given Nancy was frail, petite and had a small aortic valve her doctors determined she’d be a good candidate for TAVI in order to preserve her heart and blood pumping function. 

  • History of Coronary Artery Disease and COPD

    Carl, 75 years, male

    Carl had severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and an STS score of 8%. He experienced chest pain and shortness of breath. He has COPD, diabetes and a history of coronary artery disease so he went to his doctor right away to get checked out. His doctors determined he’d be a good candidate for TAVI given he may need additional coronary interventions (stents) in the future.

  • A deployment indicator gives you a clear visualization of the valve’s deployment progress.

  • The simple deployment wheel provides both audible and tactile feedback as you deploy the valve.

  • Two macro-slide buttons make it easy for you to open and close the distal end of the delivery system during valve loading and post-deployment.

  • Eliminates all motion of the delivery system at the vessel access site during deployment.5,6

  • The automatic lock button prevents full valve deployment until you’ve got the valve right where you want it.

  • With the unique micro-adjustment wheel, you can close gaps between the valve capsule and the atraumatic nosecone.

  • Deliverability and deployment redefined

    Remarkable deliverability in a self-expanding platform.

    Portico with FlexNav TAVI System brings together innovation across every aspect of its design, offering remarkable flexibility and exceptionally smooth tracking.

    3D Flexibility. Infinite possibility.

    FlexNav offers three-dimensional flexibility at the distal end and throughout its entire working length.

    Atraumatic nosecone

    Large-Cell framework

    Flexible capsule

    Hydrophilic coating

    Integrated sheath

    • Atraumatic nosecone and smooth transitions are designed to reduce risk of vascular complications and calcium dislodgement.

    • The large-cell framework of the Portico™ valve reduces metal mass, resulting in a more flexible capsule.

    • The capsule is more flexible because it does not require bilateral metal rails or extra nitinol braiding, resulting in enhanced flexibility.7

    • Hydrophilic coating reduces friction by 98%,7 providing lubricity to guide the system through vasculature.

    • Integrated sheath for low 14 F delivery profile.3*
      * 14 F equivalent integrated sheath diameter for patients requiring 23 mm or 25 mm valve.

  • Feedback from Portico with FlexNav TAVI system users*

    OVERALL DELIVERABILITY

    “There’s not another valve out there that allows you to have such a relaxing delivery.”

    Interventional Cardiologist, United States of America

    OVERALL FLEXIBILITY

    “The system is a major advancement. With release, it didn’t move at all. And this was in a relatively horizontal aorta. We were able to end up being three mm in both the non-coronary and the left coronary side. Perfect implant. Very impressed. Big improvement.”

    Interventional Cardiologist, United States of America

    PLACEMENT ACCURACY

    “A key element of this is the stability of the delivery. Having done a lot of cases before, I and the team had a really good understanding of the movements of the valve when it was being released or retracted. But here, with the FlexNav System, it is just stable throughout the whole delivery.”

    Interventional Cardiologist, Australia

    EXCELLENT HEMODYNAMICS

    “Portico has best-in-class hemodynamics. It busts the myth that supra-annular leaflet design is needed to optimize hemodynamics.”

    Interventional Cardiologist, United States of America
