The ATS 3f Aortic Bioprosthesis incorporates revolutionary design concepts intended to preserve native aortic root geometry and function. Through this unique approach, the prosthesis more closely mimics native valve function providing excellent hemodynamic performance that may contribute to improvements in key determinants of cardiovascular performance such as coronary blood flow and left ventricular mass regression. Data suggests that physiologic stresses, a detriment to bioprosthetic valve longevity, may be more efficiently distributed throughout the prosthetic's leaflets.

"The ATS 3F valve incorporates important characteristics of many other valves all in one product. The hemodynamic characteristics are very good and the valve offers the potential for longer durability. Previous stentless valve designs appeared to have good hemodynamic performance, but compl
