Further study details as provided by Medtronic Cardiovascular:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Long-term safety and durability of the valve [ Time Frame: 5 year follw-up ]
    The long-term safety of the valve will be assessed by the rate of valve related complications. The long-term durability of the valve will be assessed by measuring hemodynamic performance of the valve
