Annuloplasty rings are an established surgical device used for the repair of mitral valves. Aran Biomedical offers braided and tubular knit fabrics that can be used in an annuloplasty ring outer sheath. The fabric can be shape formed, laser machined, sewn, bonded or ultrasonically welded, depending on the design configuration and assembly requirements.
Whether flexible, semi-rigid or stiff in design, a core can be developed for the annuloplasty ring to meet preferred mechanical performance. Custom tethers or sutures can also be developed to facilitate device placement.
