|Transcatheter Heart Valve Repair and Replacement|
|Medtronic won approval for its CoreValve Evolut R transcatheter aortic valve replacement product in 2015.|
Transcatheter valve therapies—specifically transcatheter aortic valve replacement and transcatheter mitral valve replacement—have been a hot topic in cardio for a couple of years now, and iData Research analyst Sean Collins predicts they’ll still make headlines in 2016.
He expects valve-in-valve technologies such as Edwards Lifesciences’s Sapien XT and Medtronic’s CoreValve to experience growth in procedures and for indications to expand to lower-risk patients.
