Trifecta™ Valve with Glide™ Technology (GT)

Description

The Trifecta™ GT Valve combines the best-in-class hemodynamics of the Trifecta™ Valve with ease of placement for challenging anatomies and enhanced features for future interventions, should the need arise. The Trifecta™ GT valve is designed for performance for both conventional and minimally invasive procedures.

Product Highlights

Specifications


The Trifecta™ GT valve is designed to:

  • Provide excellent hemodynamic performance1
  • Provide excellent durability with the pericardial-covered stent for tissue-to-tissue contact to prevent the risk of abrasion2
  • Address valve calcification with Linx™ AC treatment*3-9
  • Maintain structural integrity with a high-strength, fatigue-resistant, titanium alloy stent2
  • Provide easier access to the aortic annulus specifically for inexperienced surgeons and in minimally invasive approaches

Materials List

  • Valve Leaflets: Bovine pericardium
  • Stent: Titanium (radiopaque)
  • Fabric Stent Covering: Polyester
  • Valve Sewing Cuff: Polyester
  • Tissue Stent Covering: Porcine pericardium
  • Latex-free

Reorder Number Description
TF2000-2 Autoclavable tray with cover, rigid holder handle (screw-in) T2002-R and six double-ended aortic sizers (19 mm–29 mm) with a valve replica end and a cylindrical annular sizing end. UT2000-R rigid holder handle (click-in) is included in TF 2000-2 set for the Trifecta valve.
T2002-R Trifecta GT rigid holder handle. Made of stainless steel to provide more rigidity than the T2002. May be used in place of T2002.
T2002 Trifecta GT flexible holder handle. Made with nitinol to provide flexibility during implantation. May be used in place of T2002-R.
EX2000-R Rigid extension handle. Made of stainless steel to provide additional length when used with a holder handle.
EX-05 Flexible extension handle. Made of nitinol to provide additional length when used with a holder handle.
