The Freestyle™ bioprosthesis is our most physiologic valve. Every aspect is meant to closely emulate the native aortic valve and offer comparable benefits. It is a great choice for younger, more active patients – and those with challenging anatomies – because of its excellent hemodynamics, durability, and patient outcomes.
The Freestyle bioprosthesis is for the replacement of malfunctioning native or prosthetic aortic valves with the option of aortic root replacement.
Maximal blood flow, excellent durability and outcomes, from a valve designed to mimic nature.
The full root, stentless design of the Freestyle porcine bioprosthesis — based on more than 30 years of Medtronic tissue valve design improvements — can be used for full root, modified subcoronary, and complete subcoronary configurations.
Published clinical experience demonstrates impressive long-term performance in all age groups. Additional factors that may contribute to durability are:
Proprietary AOA™ anti-calcification tissue treatment that mitigates calcification and protects the tissue*
Physiologic Fixation process that minimizes the stress applied to the leaflets during fixation*
