New PARTNER 3 trial 5 year data

Data from the PARTNER 3 trial continues to prove the Edwards SAPIEN 3 platform is the choice for lifetime management – from the index procedure and beyond.

  • Life: The only transcatheter heart valve with 1% death or disabling stroke at 1 year
  • Time: The only transcatheter heart valve with 90% survival at 5 years
  • Management: The only transcatheter heart valve with a THV-in-THV indication*

*For patients assessed at high-risk for surgical replacement.

Consistently demonstrating the results you need for the outcomes that matter

With patients of all ages living longer and having high expectations for their quality of life, lifetime management is increasingly important. The first valve choice matters, and the Edwards SAPIEN 3 platform is designed to deliver a TAVI experience you can count on for all three essential components of lifetime management.

Consistently demonstrating the results you need for the outcomes that matter.1

A comprehensive approach to the durability that addresses the key drivers of reintervention.2

Making future options possible.3

Building on a legacy of superior outcomes

Proven in the landmark PARTNER clinical trials

  • Only SAPIEN 3 valve is proven superior to surgery* in low-risk patients
  • 1% death or disabling stroke at 1 year1

Supported by outstanding outcomes, SAPIEN 3 Ultra valve delivers at 1 year:1








Moderate or severe




Baseline included

Consistently strong outcomes for a variety of patient morphologies:

  • Excellent clinical outcomes in low-risk bicuspid patients4
  • Consistently strong outcomes across indicated annular sizes5

*In the PARTNER 3 trial, SAPIEN 3 TAVR was proven superior to surgery on the primary endpoint of all-cause death, all stroke, and rehospitalization (valve-related or procedure-related, and including due to heart failure) at one year and multiple pre-specified secondary endpoints in low-risk patients.

A comprehensive approach to durability that addresses the key drivers of reintervention

Compared to SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve.

Ready for the next intervention and beyond

Excellent performance for today's coronary access


(68/68) success post-TAVR coronary access rate3

Preserving coronary access for future needs


risk of future sinus sequestration¶9

Risk of sinus sequestration if (1) prior TAV commissure level above STJ and (2) the distance between TAV and STJ was <2.0mm in each coronary sinus.

The only platform approved and indicated for both TAV-in-TAV and TAV-in-SAV procedures10**

Primary endpoints of death and stroke for SAPIEN 3 TAVI (Native vs Redo)11

  • No statistical difference in death and stroke between redo SAPIEN 3 TAVR vs. native SAPIEN 3 TAVR at 1 year
