Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center Surgeon Pioneers Use of Heart Valve Repair Ring
Date:6/17/2011

physicians report.

Gerdisch and other physicians credit the Contour 3D Ring's true anatomical profile as a major benefit.

"This is the only remodeling ring that matches the shape of a healthy tricuspid valve, as determined through computed tomography (CT) images of normal tricuspid valves," said Aubrey Galloway, M.D., chairman of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City,  who was the lead clinician creating the new ring. "This will minimize stress of the valve leaflets and optimize valve function."

"We are pleased to offer surgeons a new option for treating their patients with tricuspid valve disease," said Shawn Monaghan, vice president of Surgical Based Therapies for the Medtronic Structural Heart business. "The response from surgeons for the device's three-dimensional remodeling and true anatomical profile has been very positive."
