Sorin wins CE Mark for stentless heart valve

Sorin Group (BIT:SRN) said it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its Solo Smart heart valve, designed to replace the aortic valve without leaving a stent in place.

Milan-based Sorin said the Solo Smart device is the next iteration of its Freedom Solo replacement valve. The new device features a removable stent to provide support while the valve is sewn in place and then removed, according to a press release.

The 1st implantation of the device, by Dr. Alberto Repossini of the Spedali Civili Brescia, was performed Oct. 29, Sorin said.
