Figure 1. ViV with Navitor. A) Virtual THV-to-coronary ostial distances to the right (8.00 mm) and left (10.6 mm) coronary artery. B) New active outer NaviSeal cuff at the inflow part and the curved aortic outflow part of the Navitor THV. Image courtesy of and provided by Abbott. C) Cusp overlap view predicted by preprocedural CT by isolating the radiopaque bioprosthetic stent post between the LC and RC. D) Positioning of the radiopaque marker of the delivery catheter at the annulus level. Also note the alignment of both delivery catheter plane and surgical bioprosthesis annulus plane in the LC/RC cusp overlap ...
