Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the Lotus™ Valve System for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in symptomatic subjects with severe calcific aortic stenosis who are considered high risk for surgical valve replacement.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Device: Lotus Valve System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The REPRISE II clinical study is a prospective, single-arm, multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety and performance of the Lotus Valve System for TAVR in symptomatic subjects who have severe calcific aortic valve stenosis and who are at high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: REPRISE II: REpositionable Percutaneous Replacement of Stenotic Aortic Valve Through Implantation of Lotus™ Valve System - Evaluation of Safety and Performance
Actual Study Start Date : October 8, 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 30, 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : May 13, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lotus Valve System
Patients enrolled will receive the Lotus Valve.
Device: Lotus Valve System
  • bioprosthetic bovine pericardial aortic valve
  • delivery system

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Device Performance Endpoint: Mean Aortic Valve Pressure Gradient at 30 Days Post Implant Procedure [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Mean aortic valve pressure gradient at 30 days post implant procedure as measured by echocardiography and assessed by an independent core laboratory.

  2. Primary Safety Endpoint: All-cause Mortality at 30 Days Post Implant Procedure [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Mortality at 30 days from all patients enrolled in the study (ITT population): the proportion of patients who experience an event through 30 days post-procedure out of the patients who have either had an event within 30 days post-procedure or who were event-free with last follow-up at least 23 days post-procedure

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effective Orifice Area [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Effective orifice area measured by echocardiography at 30 days and assessed by an independent core laboratory (ITT population)

  2. Device Performance Endpoint: Successful Vascular Access [ Time Frame: Post-procedure ]
    Successful vascular access, delivery and deployment of the Lotus Valve System and successful retrieval of the delivery system as reported from site

  3. Device Performance Endpoint: Successful Retrieval [ Time Frame: Post-procedure ]
    Successful retrieval (complete resheathing of the Lotus valve in the catheter and removal from the body) of the Lotus Valve System if retrieval is attempted, as reported from site

  4. Device Performance Endpoint: Successful Repositioning [ Time Frame: Post-procedure ]
    Successful repositioning (partial or complete resheathing of the Lotus Valve in the catheter and redeployment in a more accurate position within the aortic valve annulus) of the Lotus Valve System if repositioning is attempted for the last valve attempted, as reported from site

  5. Device Success According to the Valve Academic Research Consortium (VARC) [ Time Frame: Post-procedure ]
    Absence of procedural mortality as reported from site AND Correct positioning of a single prosthetic heart valve into the proper anatomical location as reported from site AND Intended performance of the prosthetic heart valve (no prosthesis-patient mismatch and mean aortic valve gradient <20 mmHg or peak velocity <3 m/s, AND no moderate or severe prosthetic valve regurgitation as measured from an independent core lab on the post-procedure echocardiography)

  6. Grade of Aortic Valve Regurgitation [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Grade of paravalvular aortic valve regurgitation at 30 days as measured by echocardiography and assessed by an independent core laboratory

  • Subject is participating in another investigational drug or device study that has not reached its primary endpoint.
  • Patient has preexisting untreated conduction system disorder that requires new pacemaker implantation.
