The VenusP-Valve System

Features of the Valve and Delivery System

The intended purpose of VenusP-Valve is to replace the pulmonary heart valve with an new valve using a minimally invasive approach, to treat right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) dysfunction and specifically for the dilated outflow tracts to restore pulmonary valve function.

The Valve:
First self-expanding nitinol stent for pulmonary valve in Europe
Free from pre-stenting and expansion balloon
Good anti-migration performance
The Delivery System:
Easy to operate, with the handle at the proximal end of the catheter used to load and deploy the valve

The Procedure: Step by Step

During The Procedure

Typically, patients are asleep under anaesthesia for the procedure and usually don’t feel any pain.

  1. The doctor will insert the delivery system into the vein (typically in your leg) through a small access site.
  2. The delivery system holding the VenusP-Valve will be placed into the vein and guided into the heart.
  3. Once the VenusP-Valve is in the right position, they will deploy the valve.
  4. The VenusP-Valve will self-expand into place and begin to direct blood flow between the right lower chamber through the valve into the pulmonary arteries and into the lungs.
  5. The delivery system will then be removed and the doctor will conduct a test to make sure the valve is working properly with an angiogram.
  6. The access site will be closed. And the procedure will be complete.

Example Angiogram:


Relief from Pulmonary Regurgitation
Increased cardiac function
Restored right ventricular function (RVOT)
