Trisol Medical goal is to develop the best-in-class Transcatheter Tricuspid Replacement Valve, which eliminates Tricuspid Regurgitation while preserving the Right Ventricle function. Trisol Medical device concept and unique design was created out of deep understanding and knowledge of the unmet need of treating Tricuspid Valve insufficiency.
Tricuspid Regurgitation occurs when the tricuspid valve fails to close properly, causing blood to flow backward from the Right Ventricle to the right atrium. Many cases of Tricuspid Regurgitation are accompanied by the Dysfunction of the Right Ventricle. In the US alone, there are about 1.6 million patients suffering from Tricuspid Regurgitation. Tricuspid Regurgitation is currently treated by surgery. Due to the high risk related to the surgical procedure, most of the patients cannot surgically treated. As such, there is a significant unmet clinical need for a transcatheter solution to Tricuspid Regurgitation.
Trisol device is a Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Replacement, which is implanted easily and intuitively. Trisol valve is constructed out of nitinol frame with specially designed dome-shaped leaflet. Its unique design provides a comprehensive solution to eliminating Tricuspid Regurgitation while preserving the Right Ventricle function. Trisol Valve is suited to all severe Tricuspid Regurgitation patients.
