Profile 3D Annuloplasty System from Medtronic

The Profile 3D® Annuloplasty Ring is a fully rigid remodeling ring with a physiologic mitral valve shape. It can be used to treat functional mitral valve diseases, such as ischemic mitral regurgitation and dilated cardiomyopathy.


  • Based on the annular geometry of normal human mitral annuli, the saddle-shaped ring may reduce leaflet stress and increase mitral valve durability.1,2
  • Leaflet stress can be related to saddle height, which could affect long-term durability of mitral valve annuloplasty repair. Studies have found that the asymmetric saddle shape with an annular height to commissural width ratio (AHCWR) of 15-25% has the minimal peak leaflet stress.1
