Abstract

The transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an established treatment for patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) at prohibitive risk for surgery. It is an alternative treatment to surgical aortic valve replacement in patients with AS at intermediate- and high-surgical risk. Although regulatory authorities extend the indications of TAVR to treat patients at low-surgical risk, the limitations of earlier-generation transcatheter heart valve (THV) systems accelerate the development of improved newer generation of THV systems. Myval™ THV (Meril Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd., Vapi, Gujarat, India) is a newer-generation, balloon-expandable TAVR system with features that facilitate accurate positioning of the bioprosthetic valve and favorable procedural and clinical outcomes. This review summarizes existing preclinical and clinical data on Myval THV for the intervention of symptomatic native AS and lays out the plan for future research program.
