Tricuspid Valve Simulation Solutions

The customizable transcatheter tricuspid heart valve simulated use solutions from BDC Laboratories provide a turnkey platform to evaluate both tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR) and tricuspid valve repair technologies.

  • Tricuspid Valve Replacement
  • Leaflet Plication / Tricuspid Valve Leaflet Clips
  • Leaflet Space Occupiers
  • Annuloplasty Rings and Bands

The tricuspid valve simulation solution consists of the right atrium, right ventricle, functioning silicone tricuspid valve with chordae, superior vena cava, jugular veins and the left subclavian vein. The model facilitates transcatheter delivery system access with integrated hemostatic valves at the jugular and subclavian veins. Additional, custom access approaches such as femoral can also be integrated into the simulated use system.

Features and Benefits

  • Clinically relevant bench model for development activities, education and physician training
  • Clear heart model allows visibility of the tricuspid valve and the replacement/repair implant and clear, compliant silicone vasculature allows visibility of the delivery system
  • Functional silicone tricuspid valve with chordae is easily installed/removed
  • Tricuspid Valve Chordae can be adjusted and tensioned to affect valve performance
  • Tricuspid Valve features realistic, valve movement and leaflet geometry
  • Integrated hemostatic valves accommodate delivery system entry via jugular and subclavian access, as well as optional femoral vein access
  • Drip tray catches any fluid spills during testing and intervention simulations
  • Silicone vasculature supports ensures the anatomical model retains its 3D configuration during procedures
  • Portable, with optional rugged, hard-sided travel case for air-travel
  • Optional PD-0750-T Portable Pulse Duplicator offers temperature-controlled, clinically relevant pulsatile environment
