Tiara is a novel transcatheter device designed to treat mitral regurgitation (MR), a condition that is often severe and can lead to heart failure and death.
Neovasc is developing the Tiara for the treatment of severe MR, a condition that affects approximately four million patients in the U.S. alone. Currently, conventional surgical treatments are only appropriate for about 20% of these patients, leaving the majority of patients untreated.
The Tiara device is delivered through the apex of the heart to replace the mitral valve while preserving the integrity of the surrounding structures of the heart.
This is an investigational device only at this time and is not for sale in any geography.
Tiara has been designed specifically to address each of the challenges listed below and meet the need for transcatheter replacement of the mitral valve, rather than being adapted from an aortic valve. Tiara implantation is achieved through a transapical approach and does not require any hemodynamic support.
