We are truly a team all the way through. And I think this approach has a profound impact not only on patients’ short term journeys, but also their long term survival after the procedure.

While it may be easy for us to get patients through the day after the procedure or to discharge, we believe that where our team effort has the biggest impact is on the long term outcomes to our patients. 93% of our trans-catheter valve patients are alive and independent at 12 months after the procedure, and this is a benchmark that we think is amongst the best in the world.
