St. Jude Medical™ Masters Series

The valve that has consistently demonstrated excellent results with low complication rates in the aortic and mitral positions for the past 30 years. Over 25 years of long-term data for the Masters Series demonstrate low rates of thromboembolic events.
St. Jude Medical® Masters Series
Overview

The Masters Series

Highlights
  • Standard valve first implanted in 1977
  • Pyrolytic carbon leaflets and orifice ring offer exceptional durability and increased thromboresistance12
  • 85° leaflet opening angle offers improved laminar flow and reduces turbulance1,6,15
  • Sewing cuff contains additional suture markers for more accurate placement
  • Radiopaque for improved visualization during X-ray and cinefluoroscopy
  • Controlled torque rotation mechanism that allows for easy rotation and intraoperative adjustment
  • St. Jude Medical heart valves are MR conditional1b

Indications, Safety & Warnings
Print

Rx Only

St. Jude Medical prosthetic heart valves are indicated for use as replacement valves in patients with a diseased, damaged, or malfunctioning native or prosthetic valve. Possible side effects for all valvular implants include, but are not limited to: regurgitation, thromboembolic phenomena, resistance to flow, infection, hemolysis, dysrhythmias, and prosthetic dehiscence or failure. Anticoagulation is recommended for patients with mechanical valve implants. Please see the physician’s manual for a full description of indications, contraindications, side effects, precautions, warnings and instructions for use.
