  • Resistant to Infection: Natural ability to resist infection.1,2,3
  • Convenient: Availability in various sizes to best fit the patient’s anatomy. Anterior mitral leaflet retained for use in endocarditis/abscess reconstruction.
  • Reduced Thrombosis Potential: Alleviates the need for anticoagulation therapy.3,4
