4C Medical is developing the first MR treatment that preserves the native mitral valve and left ventricle using a supra-annular, atrial-only fixation technology. The novel design eliminates known issues associated with current transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) technologies which rely on placement and fixation in the native mitral annulus and left ventricle.

Jeffrey Chambers, MD will present “4C Solutions that Preserve the Native Mitral Valve” at 10:21 am Tuesday, March 6. The presentation will be held in the Omni Shoreham Hotel Blue Room as part of the CRT Valve Structural Innovations session. Dr. Chambers is the Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Metropolitan Heart and Vascular Institute in Minneapolis, MN. He is also the Founder and Chief Medical Officer of 4C Medical.

Philippe Généreux, MD will present “Innovation I: A Novel Transcatheter MR Treatment Technology” at 11:00 am Tuesday, March 6.
