As the next offering in Edwards Lifesciences’ class of resilient bovine pericardial valves, ready-to-implant‡ KONECT RESILIA aortic valved conduit helps patients maintain their active lifestyles and reduces the complexity of bio-Bentall procedures.*
Edwards' integrity preservation technology transforms bovine pericardial tissue into RESILIA tissue, effectively eliminating free aldehydes, while protecting and preserving the tissue.
RESILIA tissue is the first to deliver the combination of:
KONECT RESILIA aortic valved conduit is built on the proven performance of both the Carpentier–Edwards PERIMOUNT valve platform and the Gelweave Valsalva graft.
Proven performance of the PERIMOUNT valve design—a design with published clinical durability of over 20 years2-4
Gelweave Valsalva graft
The world’s first anatomically designed aortic root graft with over 15 years of aortic root surgery clinical experience5,6
The pre-assembled KONECT RESILIA aortic valved conduit intuitively eliminates procedural steps§, which is especially important in emergency cases.
