Manufacturing of Heart Valve Frames
The transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) also referred as percutaneous aortic valve replacement (PAVR) has become the standard in heart valve surgery. Since the start of this revolutionary technique MeKo is manufacturing the backbone, the metallic frames of the valves with highest quality and an unmet fatigue life.
MeKo, well known as the pioneer in stent manufacturing, is also one of the leading manufacturers for heart valve frames. MeKo produces balloon-expandable valves, as well as self-expandable valves made of NiTi and non-expandable valves for direct aortic application. A wide range of materials is used like NiTi, 316L medical, MP35N, L605, Phynox. Heart valve frames manufactured by MeKo are characterized by superior dimensional accuracy and excellent surface quality.
