"We are thrilled to be involved in a new trial that offers patients that are at high risk for surgery for aortic valve stenosis to receive a valve through a percutaneous approach. Which basically means we can do it through delivery through the skin rather than actually opening the chest to deliver the valve. So, for patients that have aortic stenosis, have other medical problems, or are advanced in their age, this is an opportunity for them to get treatment that they otherwise might not have, and allow them to enjoy the rest of their life with relatively good quality."
