Biologic Nanofibrous Heart Valve

Biologic Nanofibrous Heart Valve

Dr. Soumen Jana has developed an improved biologic heart valve with three leaflets using electrospinning to deposit three nanofibrous layers (the first radially oriented, the second randomly oriented, and the third circumferentially oriented) that support native tissue growth and mimic biological heart valve function and performance.

Applications

  • Heart Valve Replacement

Advantages

  • Potential for long product lifespan
  • Potential to outperform both synthetic and biological valves
