The FDA has approved the Evolut R by Medtronic, a new recapturable, self-expanding system for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The first of its kind in the US, this new device is for the treatment of patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at high or extreme risk for surgery. Untreated, aortic valve stenosis can lead to serious heart problems including heart failure and even death.

“The FDA approval of Evolut R marks a significant milestone for Medtronic and TAVR, and ushers in a new era in transcatheter aortic valves with advanced, recapturable capabilities,” said Rhonda Robb, vice president and general manager, Heart Valve Therapies, Medtronic. “This approval is an outcome of our commitment to building a market-leading innovation pipeline in the transcatheter space, and we look forward to supporting heart teams as they look to next-generation technologies that optimize valve performance for a broad range of patients.”

“In a short time, the TAVR procedure has become an established treatment option for high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis who are unable to undergo surgery, and physicians are looking to technology advancements to help deliver even better patient outcomes,” Mathew Williams, MD, chief of adult cardiac surgery and director of interventional cardiology and structural heart at NYU Langone Medical Center, said in the release. “The advancement of recapturability with Evolut R gives physicians more confidence during the procedure.”
