Sorin : 11 November, 2013  (New Product)
A European implant of Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit has been performed as an innovative approach to aortic root surgery for the first time
Aortic root surgery system used on first European patient


Sorin Group has announced that the first European implant of Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit was performed by Prof. Roberto di Bartolomeo, Chief of the Cardiac Surgery Department at Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, Bologna, Italy.



The Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit is the only aortic root surgery system with bovine pericardium valve available today. It consists of a vascular Valsalva conduit to be coupled with Sorin’s Mitroflow aortic pericardial heart valve. In addition to Mitroflow’s excellent hemodynamic performance and proven long-term durability, this innovative system provides cardiac surgeons with an easy and reproducible solution for replacing the ascending aorta and the diseased aortic valve in a single procedure.



“With Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit, Sorin Group offers a very intuitive approach to aortic root surgery procedures. I expect Sorin’s innovative approach will contribute to make aortic root system reconstructions more accurate and procedural times shorter, thus allowing surgeons to set even higher standards of care”, said Prof. Roberto di Bartolomeo.



Introduced in the USA at the end of 2012 following US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, the Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit has recently received CE mark and is now commercially available in Europe.



“Sorin Group is committed to providing clinicians around the world with innovative and integrated solutions targeted to improving patient care and health economic outcomes. We are very pleased to extend Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit’s commercial availability in Europe and thus allow a larger patient population to benefit from this unique reconstructive technology. The introduction of Sorin’s Mitroflow Valsalva Conduit in Europe represents a key milestone in Sorin’s strategic innovation plan”, said Michel Darnaud, Sorin Group, President, Cardiac Surgery Business Unit.
