Bovine Pericardium Organic Valvular Bioprosthesis
The Bovine Pericardium Organic Valvular Bioprosthesis consists of bovine pericardium treated in glutaraldehyde and preserved in 4% formaldehyde solution. This treatment gives the pericardium its appropriate characteristics of resistance and flexibility, and prevents antigenicity. The bioprosthesis is made on a support of polyacetal coated with bovine pericardium on which the cusps are mounted. A special stainless steel wire, inserted outside the support ring, reinforces the strength of the ring base and allows to identify the bioprosthesis position in the patient by simple radiological examination.
The Bovine Pericardium Organic Valvular Bioprosthesis is indicated for mitral, aortic, tricuspid or pulmonary valve replacements.
