“MEMO 4D simplifies and standardizes degenerative complex mitral valve repair, facilitates minimally invasive surgical approaches and preserves the mobility of the mitral valve leaflets,” said Subramanian. “The new larger sizes allow us to treat more patients and pathologies while providing the potential to further improve patient outcomes.
