Could you use extra support during minimally invasive, structural heart disease procedures?
As a surgeon or interventional cardiologist, treatments like Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) require all your skill and focus.
Quickly increase your confidence during these challenging procedures with HeartNavigator.
Beforehand, it simplifies planning, device and projection angle selection. During procedures, it provides live image guidance to support device positioning.
3 ways HeartNavigator supports structural heart disease procedures
Planning made easier for structural heart disease proceduresHeartNavigator provides automated planning to help simplify complex structural heart disease procedures. It creates an excellent 3D image from previously acquired 2D CT datasets. Virtual device templates can then be used to assess and select the appropriate device size and the best projection for the patient’s individual anatomy.
Automatically selects the optimal X-ray viewUse HeartNavigator instead of taking several low-contrast aortograms to find the optimal projection for your structural heart disease procedure. It shows different visualizations of the aortic root. The software then suggests the best projection for the procedure and you can store additional projections as needed.

“I plan all my cases with the HeartNavigator. I trust the measurements with HeartNavigator more than the measurements provided by the normal CT scan.”Dr. H. Schrőfel, Heart Surgery Clinic, Karlsruhe, Germany
Gain confidence during structural heart disease procedures
HeartNavigator is an interventional planning tool that help simplify planning, device selection, and projection angle selection in preparation for structural heart disease procedures. During the procedure, HeartNavigator provides live image guidance to support you in positioning a device with confidence.
The HeartNavigator image visualizes the aortic root in various ways, and helps to give insight into the distribution of calcification.
