  • A deployment indicator gives you a clear visualization of the valve’s deployment progress.

  • The simple deployment wheel provides both audible and tactile feedback as you deploy the valve.

  • Two macro-slide buttons make it easy for you to open and close the distal end of the delivery system during valve loading and post-deployment.

  • The stability layer ensures stable, predictable valve deployment to achieve accurate valve placement.

  • The automatic lock button prevents full valve deployment until you’ve got the valve right where you want it.

  • With the unique micro-adjustment wheel, you can close gaps between the valve capsule and the atraumatic nosecone.

Deliverability is in the details

Portico with FlexNav brings together innovation across every aspect of its design, offering remarkable flexibility and exceptionally smooth tracking.

3D FLEXIBILITY. INFINITE POSSIBILITY.

FlexNav offers three-dimensional flexibility at the distal end and throughout its entire working length.

Atraumatic nosecone

Large-Cell framework

Flexible capsule

Hydrophilic coating

Integrated sheath

  • Atraumatic nosecone and smooth transitions are designed to reduce vascular complications and prevent calcium dislodgement.

  • The large-cell framework of the Portico valve reduces metal mass, resulting in a more flexible capsule.

  • The capsule is more flexible because it does not require bilateral metal rails or extra nitinol braiding, resulting in enhanced flexibility.1

  • Hydrophilic coating reduces friction by 98%,2 providing lubricity to guide the system through vasculature.

  • Integrated sheath for low 14 F delivery profile.3,*

FEEDBACK FROM FLEXNAV USERS*

  • OVERALL DELIVERABILITY
    Interventional Cardiologist, Italy

    “It was very easy to use. We saved two French sizes of the sheath compared to the previous system. The control of the delivery system was absolutely better. It’s a big advantage in the development of the TAVI procedure with the Portico valve.”

  • OVERALL FLEXIBILITY
    Interventional Cardiologist, United States of America

    “The system is a major advancement. With release, it didn’t move at all. And this was in a relatively horizontal aorta. We were able to end up being 2 to 3 mm in both the non-coronary and the left coronary side. Perfect implant. Very impressed. Big improvement.”

  • PLACEMENT ACCURACY
    Interventional Cardiologist, Australia

    “A key element of this is the stability of the delivery. Having done a lot of cases before, I and the team had a really good understanding of the movements of the valve when it was being released or retracted. But here, with the FlexNav system, it is just stable throughout the whole delivery.”

  • DELIVERABILITY IN TORTUOUS ANATOMY
    Interventional Cardiologist, United Kingdom

    “The biggest benefit is the ability for the valve to be advanced even through very tortuous anatomies. The hydrophilic coating of the delivery system allows the valve and the delivery system to swim through arches and accesses without any difficulty at all.”
