The Simplici-T® Annuloplasty System offers a first-of-its-kind approach to mitral and tricuspid valve repair. It is the first flexible band to eliminate the need for traditional sizing, providing a custom fit for every patient and requiring less inventory space. Correct annuloplasty band sizing is an important element to achieve a successful repair.
- Better early postoperative LV systolic function over patients with a rigid ring1
- Allows annulus size and configuration to adapt to changes throughout cardiac cycle2-4
- Better diastolic blood flow across the mitral valve, particularly during exercise5
- Flexible annuloplasty repair devices place less stress on the sutures during systole, minimizing the likelihood of dehiscence6
