Robotic Mitral Valve Replacements

 

So you know, the use of robots for mitral valve repair originally received FDA approval in 2002.

However, the use of robots for mitral valve replacement is relatively new thanks to fantastic enhancements in heart valve replacement devices including the Epic Plus valve.  In addition, the Epic Plus valve offers patients several innovations specific to valve-in-valve procedures and enhanced durability that you can learn about at this link.

Keep on tickin!
