Biomaterials and Design Advances Improve the Efficacy and Safety of Heart Valves and Occluders

Structural heart diseases (SHD) encompass cardiac conditions that cause abnormal blood flow inside the heart's chambers, which can be wrong blood flow direction or blood stagnation. Structural abnormalities in the heart lead to impaired functioning rather than the heart's blood vessels. The cardiovascular implants industry has developed prosthetic valves and occluders to repair structural cardiac defects. This research study analyzes technological innovations in transcatheter mitral valve replacement/repair (TMVr/TMVR) implants and atrial septal defect (ASD) occluders. These implants are evolving to become more biomimetic and intelligent with artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled deployers.
