First Patient in the U.S. Treated with the J-Valve TF System
The first patient in the U.S. was treated with the J-Valve TF System by Dr. Dean Kereiakes of The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center in Ohio. “Sharon was actually turned down by multiple surgeons, thought she would be too high-risk with her chance of dying in the procedure. This valve is specifically designed to treat leaky aortic valves,” said Dr. Kereiakes on a #HeartMonth segment. Watch video

About The J-Valve™ System
The J·Valve™ Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) system* is a revolutionary next generation heart valve implantation system. The system is designed to replace a patient’s failed native aortic heart valve. The J·Valve™ TAVR System consists of a uniquely designed transcatheter aortic valve and delivery device designed by JC Medical in the USA. Other systems are indicated for aortic stenosis alone and aortic bioprostheses are often difficult to position accurately. The J·Valve™ system was designed to address these problems in order to create a more useful and reliable replacement transcatheter aortic valve for surgeons and patients.
This system can be used to treat:
- Severe aortic stenosis
- Pure aortic regurgitation
- A combination of aortic stenosis and regurgitation, also known as
Other features of the system:
- System is easy to learn and simple to operate
- Automatic anatomic alignment with the native aortic root
*This system has not yet been approved by the FDA and is currently not for sale.
The J·Valve™ Transcatheter Aortic Valve
positions itself according to the anatomy
of the native aortic annulus. It naturally
slides into place, allowing doctors to
rely on tactile feedback to achieve
*This system has not yet been approved
by the FDA and is currently not for sale.
Key Design Features:
- U-shaped “anchor rings” facilitate accurate self-positioning of the replacement aortic valve
- Low profile design minimizes risk of coronary blockage
- With four different valve sizes, the system ensures a perfect fit for each patient
Doctors can perform transcatheter replacement
aortic valve implantations accurately because
the intuitive design of the delivery device is
easy to use.
*This system has not yet been approved by the FDA
and is currently not for sale.
Key Design Features:
- Valve loads seamlessly into the nosecone
- Locking mechanism ensures valve deployment at the correct time
- Two control knobs release the valve into place
