Product Hall Easy-Fit? Prosthetic Heart Valve - Mitral M7700. The device uses a single pyrolytic carbon disc occluder pivoting within a titanium housing. The housing is machined into final configuration from a single piece of solid titanium and has no welds or introduced bends. It is an open-membered design in which all members project centrally without distal attachment. A rotatable fabric sewing ring is affixed to the valve. The valve is provided on a holder (collect) to facilitate insertion and to provide protection during shipping and handling. The valve is sterile and non-pyrogenic if seal and package are not opened, damaged, or broken.
