Brief Summary:
To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Model 400 aortic valve bioprosthesis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Aortic Stenosis Device: Model 400 aortic valve bioprosthesis Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, interventional, non-randomized, worldwide, multi-center trial, with each site following a common protocol. A maximum of 1300 subjects will be implanted at a maximum of 40 sites in the US, Europe and Canada. The trial will include male and female patients of legal age to provide informed consent in the country where they enroll in the trial, requiring replacement for a diseased, damaged, or malfunctioning native or prosthetic aortic valve. Subjects will be followed out to 5 years and select sites will follow subjects out to 12 years. Enrollment is closed as of 14Feb2023.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Model 400 aortic valve bioprosthesis Device: Model 400 aortic valve bioprosthesis

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the safety of the Model 400 valve with regard to valve-related adverse events and death. [ Time Frame: A minimum of 15 subjects per valve size will be following through one year ]
    Safety of the valve will be evaluated by the time-related incidence of valve-related adverse events and death. The following valve-related adverse events will be evaluated in this study: Thromboembolism, Thrombosis, Hemorrhage, Paravalvular leak (PVL), Endocarditis, Hemolysis, Structural valve deterioration, Non-structural dysfunction, Reintervention, Explant, and Death.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Confirm the effectiveness of the Model 400 valve, with regard to NYHA Functional Classification and hemodynamic performance. [ Time Frame: A minimum of 15 subjects per valve size will be following through one year ]

    The effectiveness endpoints are:

    • New York Heart Association Functional Classification (at discharge (or 30 days), 3-6 months, 1 year and annually thereafter through 5 years) as compared to Baseline.
    • Clinically acceptable Hemodynamic Performance (at discharge (or 30 days), 3-6 months, 1 year and annually thereafter through 5 years) confirmed by core lab evaluation of echocardiography.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient has moderate or greater aortic stenosis or regurgitation, and there is clinical indication for replacement of their native or prosthetic aortic valve with a bioprosthesis, with or without concomitant procedures, which are limited to any of the following:

    i. LAA ligation ii. CABG iii. PFO closure iv. Ascending aortic aneurysm or dissection repair not requiring circulatory arrest v. Resection of a sub-aortic membrane not requiring myectomy

  2. Patient is geographically stable and willing to return to the implanting site for all follow-up visits
  3. Patient is of legal age to provide informed consent in the country where they enroll in the trial
  4. Patient has been adequately informed of risks and requirements of the trial and is willing and able to provide informed consent for participation in the clinical trial

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient has a pre-existing prosthetic valve or annuloplasty device in another position or requires replacement or repair of the mitral, pulmonary or tricuspid valve
  2. Patient has had previous implant and then explant of the Model 400 aortic valve bioprosthesis
  3. Patient presents with active endocarditis, active myocarditis or other systemic infection
  4. Patient has an anatomical abnormality which would increase surgical risk of morbidity or mortality, including:
