The defining features of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve

Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is the only transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) system superior to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) for combined death, stroke and rehospitalisation in aortic stenosis (AS) patients of low-surgical risk.1

Proven valve tissue

The same proven bovine pericardial leaflet as Edwards surgical valves, treated with the ThermaFix anticalcification process to reduce calcium deposit.

Low profile access

Low profile access helps to reduce major vascular complications.

  • 2.2% at 30 days post procedure observed across 496 patients in the PARTNER 3 Trial1

Frame design

Low cobalt-chromium frame height and open geometry facilitates future coronary access.2

The outer sealing skirt virtually eliminates moderate or greater paravalvular leak

  • Only 4 of 487 patients assessed at 30 days post TAVI in the PARTNER 3 Trial

Transfemoral delivery system

Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve shares the same optimised, ergonomically designed Edwards COMMANDER and eSheath delivery systems as Edwards SAPIEN 3 Ultra valve.

Aortic and Mitral valve-in-valve procedures

Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is approved for valve-in-valve procedures in both the aortic and mitral positions, allowing patients at high or greater surgical risk to avoid an additional open-heart procedure.

3D sizing and delivery system

Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is available in 4 sizes for maximum flexibility and optimal fitting.

Proven superior to surgery in PARTNER 3 Trial

Edwards SAPIEN 3 TAVI: proven superiority to surgery in low-risk patients1

In the combined end-point of all-cause mortality, stroke, or rehospitalisation at 1 year post-procedure (8.5% for TAVI vs 15.1% for surgery, p=0.001).
Rehospitalisation rates at 1 year.
1% death or disabling stroke at 1 year, approximately 3 times lower than surgery.

PARTNER 3 Trial results enabled Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve to be the first TAVI valve to achieve CE labelling for low-risk severe aortic stenosis (sAS) patients
