The novel trileaflet heart valve that is presently undergoing investigation is a composite design of a proprietary polymer (SIBS), with an embedded fabric. SIBS had been shown to be a biocompatible, oxidatively stable polymer, and by adopting the natural valve leaflet design (reinforcement fabric), the SIBS trileaflet valve has the potential to have outstanding hemodynamic performance, durability, and biocompatibility [1,2].
