Less invasive methods to replace valves grew from prototype devices designed to prevent regurgitation in the mid-1960s, culminating with the first use of a balloon aortic valvuloplasty in a human with aortic stenosis in 1985.
The long-term results of percutaneous aortic valvuloplasty for congenital aortic valve stenosis in pediatric patients and its efficacy in preventing or postponing aortic valve surgery are good10.
Manta is a novel CE Marked vascular closure device designed to close punctures ranging from 10F to 24F at femoral arterial access sites after cardiac catheterisation procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement, endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA/EVAR), ventricular assist, and balloon aortic valvuloplasty.

MANTA is a novel vascular closure device designed to close punctures ranging from 10F to 24F at femoral arterial access sites after cardiac catheterization procedures, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA/EVAR), ventricular assist (VAD), and balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV), according to the company.
One developed endocarditis, then underwent balloon aortic valvuloplasty and aortic valve replacement with a mechanical valve 4 months into pregnancy, with subsequent vaginal delivery at 38 weeks.
Treatment options include open heart surgery to replace the stenotic valve, TAVR, or a procedure called aortic valvuloplasty, which uses a catheter to guide a small balloon to the valve.
This year's MEDSPEC Award went to Sue McAlister (Central North Island) for her poster: "Emergence of Aortic Valvuloplasty as a treatment for Severe Aortic Stenosis.
A less invasive means is percutaneous aortic valvuloplasty, but this has a limited and usually only a temporary effect.
It involves a balloon aortic valvuloplasty followed by placement of an artificial valve over the native aortic valve.
