BRISBANE, Australia and EAGAN, Minn., Nov. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Anteris Technologies Ltd (ASX:AVR) (Anteris or the Company), a structural heart company advancing its novel DurAVR™ valve for aortic repair and replacement, today announced its participation in a symposium hosted by Credit Suisse, featuring important technologies addressing major structural heart indications.
The forum, entitled “Credit Suisse Virtual Structural Heart Sessions,” will feature new companies in the structural heart disease space who are developing disruptive solutions for large market opportunities such as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), and Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR) procedures, and others. The three-hour event will take place virtually on November 23rd at 10:00AM ET, and will be moderated by Matt Miksic, Senior Analyst at Credit Suisse.
Wayne Paterson, Chief Executive Officer of Anteris will provide an overview of the Company’s proprietary ADAPT® tissue platform which is the technology behind DurAVR™, a unique 3D single-piece aortic valve that features superior durability with 10-year “no-calcification” data. In addition, Professor Bart Meuris MD, PhD – Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at University Hospitals, Leuven (Belgium) and lead surgeon of the first-in-human clinical study for SAVR placements of the DurAVR, will present key interim findings from the trials’ early results (October 2020) which thus far, have exceeded expectations. Key observations from this trial include:
- DurAVR™ can restore normal pre-disease hemodynamics and has the potential to be a functional cure for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis
- Patient recovery was swift, and no stay in an intensive care unit was needed
- This technology, with both surgical and transcatheter options, offers a potentially more durable solution for enhancing acute and long-term outcomes for patients with aortic valve disease
“We are grateful and excited to be selected to participate in this forum to further bolster the profile of DurAVR™, which truly represents an important innovation that will impact the entire structural heart market due to the valve’s superior hemodynamic profile,” commented Wayne Paterson, Chief Executive Officer of Anteris.
