Cardiovalve has a pair of milestones that could help catapult the company into the forefront of the tricuspid valve market. The Or Yehuda, Israel-based company received FDA approval for an early feasibility study of the transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement system and Breakthrough Device Designation for the technology. The study’s primary endpoint is the safety and feasibility of the Cardiovalve technology and procedure in reducing tricuspid regurgitation, with evaluations at 30 days and periodically up to five years. The study will be conducted in collaboration with five leading US hospitals. In a re...
