The Inspiris Resilia is a replacement aortic valve comprised of 3 elements: Resilia tissue, VFit technology, and Carpentier-Edwards Perimount Magna Ease valve design. Carpentier-Edwards is an established, proven valve design; VFit is a new, proprietary platform that is designed for future adaptation for valve-in-valve procedures. Resilia tissue is a new, first-of-its-kind tissue platform that utilizes integrity preservation technology intended to provide improved anticalcification properties. Resilia consists of bovine pericardium that has been transformed via this novel integrity preservation process. The process eliminates the need for valve preservation in liquid solutions, which prevents the exposure to free aldehyde groups that occurs with storage in preservative solutions such as glutaraldehyde. The Inspiris Resilia valve is the first replacement tissue valve that may be stored dry.
