SJM™ Rigid Saddle Ring

Product Highlights

  • Designed to restore the shape of a healthy mitral annulus1
  • Titanium core maintains the anatomical shape and provides annular remodeling
  • Saddle shape contributes to efficient distribution of leaflet stress and chordal tension, which may increase repair durability1-4
  • EZ Suture™cuff is supported by a unique triangular core for a larger suture target
