transapical delivery, currently finalizing preclinical regulatory studies and planned to enter human use the first half of next year. A trans-septal system is also in development and will enter human studies following transapical validation. The Saturn prosthesis consists of a mitral bovine bioprosthesis assembled onto a Nitinol self-expanding stent. Saturn's unique anchoring and sealing structure design allows the clinician to accurately deliver the prosthesis in the anatomically correct position thus ensuring a precise alignment within the patient's native valve. The proprietary single part, multi-functional system provides active fixation and resistance to migration. The system's sub-annular ring affords inverse remodelling of the mitral annulus and the low profile of the prosthesis ensures unimpeded flow from the left ventricle after implantation.
