inQB8 Medical Technologies LLC and Peijia Medical Limited report on the successful implantation of a first-in-human (FIH) tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR) system in the USA
“We have successfully implanted the MonarQ TTV in the appropriate tricuspid region in this high-risk patient. My team and I are grateful and excited to work with Dr. Qadri and his team at inQB8, who have provided this patient with a very exciting MonarQ TTV implant treatment option.”,Dr. Wilson Szeto said. “Due to multiple risk factors and anatomic limitations, conventional tricuspid valve surgery or transcatheter edge-to-edge tricuspid valve repair were not options for this patient. Through careful review and study within our team, we determined that TTVR with MonarQ TTV would relieve symptoms and provide improved quality of life for this very high-risk patient whose only other option was hospice. The valve was successfully implanted resulting in a significant reduction in her profuse tricuspid regurgitation,Dr. Seto added.
“I am honored and excited to work with Dr. Wilson Seto and his team at UPENN Presbyterian Medical Center are in this next chapter of transcatheter valve therapy. The MonarQ TTV has a unique biodynamic tethering system that utilizes and maintains the natural motion of the heart by anchoring the implant to the native leaflets. Biodynamic motion distributes systolic loads, and the multilobular atrial disc helps stabilize the native valve and reduces paravalvular leak. We are very grateful to the patient and her family for agreeing to this new type of valve replacement treatment,” He said Arshad QadriMD, cardiothoracic surgeon and co-founder, CEO, and CMO of inQB8.
“In the past few years, the need for a TTVR solution has become increasingly clear. As Peijia looks to expand its presence globally and build out its core architecture portfolio, our joint investment in inQB8 and MonarQ TTVR technology was a natural choice,” he said. doctor. Michael ChangChairman and CEO of Peijia. “The successful FIH MonarQ implant in the USA represents an exciting step in bringing this life-saving and life-enhancing technology to more and more patients around the world.”
