A size-adjustable pulmonary valve for pediatric patients



  • Surgically implanted pulmonary valve replacement

  • Novel biomimetic bileaflet design

  • Inspired by the geometry of the human venous valve

  • Fully synthetic 

  • Functions across a wide range of diameters

  • Customizable implant diameter

  • Designed to be balloon expanded via minimally invasive transcatheter approach as the patient grows

Autus Valve Technologies, Inc. is a medical device company developing the Autus Valve - a novel synthetic size-adjustable surgical pulmonary valve replacement device for pediatric patients
