Setting higher standards for today’s TAVI
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
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
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.
Aortic | Transfemoral, Transapical, and Transaortic
Mitral | Transseptal, Transapical
3D sizing and delivery system
Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is available in 4 sizes for maximum flexibility and optimal fitting.
