nt, but face excessive risk with alternative approaches," said Craig Smith, M.D., Chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and the co-principal investigator for the U.S. PARTNER trial.

The surgical arm of the trial evaluates the Edwards SAPIEN valve and the two transcatheter delivery systems -- Ascendra for transapical access, and RetroFlex for transfemoral access -- as compared to surgical, open-heart valve replacement. The medical management arm of the trial evaluates the Edwards SAPIEN valve with the RetroFlex transfemoral delivery system as compared to appropriate medical therapy.

Edwards has significant experience with transcatheter valve procedures based on more than 600 implants of the transcatheter heart valve through a series of extensive clinical trials and feasibility studies in Europe, the U.S. and Canada. The Edwards SAPIEN valve with the Ascendra transapical and RetroFlex transfemoral delivery systems is commercially available in Europe.
