INSPIRIS RESILIA Aortic Valve
Right for today.
Ready for tomorrow.
The right choice today.
Because today, your patients want an improved quality of life and the potential to expand their future options.
Feel confident with a design and features you can trust.
The INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve incorporates features of the trusted Edwards PERIMOUNT and Magna Ease valve platform to enhance ease of implant.1,2,3
The INSPIRIS RESILIA valve delivers on the promise of better ongoing patient quality of life without the inconvenience of monitoring, dietary restrictions and reduction of participation in active lifestyles typically seen with a mechanical valve.4,5
The INSPIRIS valve possesses many advantages over a mechanical valve:
- Freedom to live a more active lifestyle
- Fewer dietary restrictions
- No need for long-term anticoagulants
- No clicking sound with every heartbeat
Built with RESILIA tissue†, the INSPIRIS valve is designed to oﬀer enhanced tissue anti-calciﬁcation technology that will potentially allow the valve to last longer.6
- RESILIA tissue is bovine pericardial tissue treated with a special integrity preservation technology that effectively eliminates free aldehydes, a key factor in tissue calcification, while protecting and preserving tissue.6,7
- RESILIA tissue is the result of a development program of over 10 years involving more than 100 evaluations of safety and efficacy.8,9
Backed by a strong and growing base of preclinical and clinical evidence supporting its ongoing study of durability and hemodynamic performance.6,8,9
Ready for tomorrow.
Help your patients meet the future confidently, with enhanced options for subsequent valve intervention.
The INSPIRIS RESILIA valve incorporates novel VFit technology, designed to enable valve-in-valve procedures in the future, at a time when patients are older and potentially at a higher risk for complications.
Unlike other valves, the INSPIRIS RESILIA valve is specifically designed to deliver a controlled and predictable expansion during valve-in-valve deployment.*10
How VFit technology enables controlled expansion
INSPIRIS RESILIA Aortic Valve
Expanding future possibilities for you and your patients starts today.
“Patients undergoing a valve replacement are living long lives and remaining more active through their later years, increasing the need for advanced valve replacement technologies. The absence of structural valve deterioration in these patients is extremely encouraging and highlights the potential of valves containing RESILIA tissue for patients who may otherwise opt for a mechanical valve, which requires long-term use of blood thinning medications.”

COMMENCE Trial Clinical Summary
The COMMENCE trial: Four-year outcomes with an aortic bioprosthesis with RESILIA tissue
FOR MODEL 11500A SIZES 19–25 MM ONLY.
WARNING: DO NOT PERFORM STAND-ALONE BALLOON AORTIC VALVULOPLASTY PROCEDURES ON THIS VALVE FOR THE SIZES 19 – 25 mm. Although the valve will maintain a stable diameter at implant and during intracardiac conditions, the diameter of this valve will expand if radial force is applied, such as during a balloon aortic valvuloplasty. This may expand the valve causing aortic incompetence, coronary embolism or annular rupture.
The expansion zone is activated by applied radial force. Click video below to view the band expansion.
WARNING: Valve-in-valve sizing in the INSPIRIS valve has only been tested with specific Edwards transcatheter heart valves. Use of other transcatheter valves may result in embolization of transcatheter devices anchored within or result in annular rupture. Refer to device instructions for use for full prescribing and safety information.
Intended use and indications for use
The INSPIRIS RESILIA Aortic Valve, Model 11500A, is intended for use as a heart valve replacement.
The INSPIRIS RESILIA Aortic Valve, Model 11500A, is indicated for the replacement of native or prosthetic aortic heart valves.
- Valve leaflets: Bovine pericardium

Important safety information
INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve
Indications: For use in replacement of native or prosthetic aortic heart valves.
Contraindications: There are no known contraindications with the use of the INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve.
Complications and Side Effects: Thromboembolism, valve thrombosis, hemorrhage, hemolysis, regurgitation, endocarditis, structural valve deterioration, nonstructural dysfunction, stenosis, arrhythmia, transient ischemic attack/stroke, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, any of which could lead to reoperation, explantation, permanent disability, and death.
Warnings: DO NOT ADJUST THE VALVE DIAMETER BY EXPANDING THE BAND PRIOR TO/OR DURING IMPLANTATION OF THE SURGICAL VALVE. The expandable band is not designed to allow for compression or expansion during implantation of the surgical valve. This will cause damage to the valve and may result in aortic incompetence. DO NOT PERFORM STAND-ALONE BALLOON AORTIC VALVULOPLASTY PROCEDURES ON THIS VALVE FOR THE SIZES 19 – 25 mm as this may expand the valve causing aortic incompetence, coronary embolism or annular rupture. Valve-in-valve sizing in the INSPIRIS valve has only been tested with specific Edwards transcatheter heart valves. Use of other transcatheter valves may result in embolization of transcatheter devices anchored within or result in annular rupture.
CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. See instructions for use for full prescribing information.
