The Symetis ACURATE TA™ system has a unique and intelligent design featuring a two-step deployment technique. The ACURATE TA transapical aortic bioprosthesis is composed of three elements: a valve made of three non-coronary native porcine leaflets attached to a self-expanding nitinol stent and a PET skirt that is sutured onto the inner and the outer surface of the nitinol stent. The most distinctive aspects of the bioprosthesis design are the self-seating and self-sealing features that allow for optimal positioning of the valve, promote sealing, and reduce paravalvular leak. Combined with the two-step deployment technique of the delivery system, these properties provide outstanding ease-of-use throughout the procedure. The ACURATE TA bioprosthesis is available in three sizes (S, M, L) to treat patients with aortic annulus diameters from 21mm to 27mm.
