Transapical aortic valve implantation (TA-AVI) has evolved as a routine procedure to treat selected high-risk elderly patients. In the vast majority, the balloon-expandable SAPIEN™ prosthesis has been used for TA-AVI. The new JenaValve™ prosthesis is designed for antegrade transapical implantation and consists of a self-expandable Nitinol™ stent with a porcine tissue-prosthesis mounted on a sheath-less delivery catheter.
