Abstract

We present a simpler and faster way of implanting the Edwards Intuity Elite rapid deployment valve system. Annular sizing and guiding suture placement are performed in the usual manner. After the valve is parachuted down to the annulus, the balloon catheter is detached and a vent catheter is placed through the center hole to maximize exposure of the valve. The guiding sutures are tied down using an automated suture fastening device instead of securing snares. Visualization of the tip of the suture fastener on the annulus ensures proper valve seating. The sealing frame is ballooned, and the valve is deployed.
