At Capstan Medical, we’re driven by an unwavering commitment to transforming the treatment of structural heart disease. By merging surgical robotics with catheter-based technology and next generation implants, we’ve pioneered a patient-optimized approach to repair and replace heart valves.
Our innovative technology offers a significantly less invasive alternative to traditional open heart surgery while ensuring a precise and reliable placement of the heart valve implant. With these advancements, we may be able to provide patients a solution to their heart valve disease while significantly reducing recovery time and minimizing the risk of complications
Heart disease continues to be a leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming the lives of nearly 700,000 Americans each year.1
Although many cardiovascular treatments have improved and become less invasive, traditional heart valve surgery remains highly invasive and is associated with lengthy recovery times.
In recent years, minimally invasive transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has gained recognition as a safe and effective standard of care. Despite a larger population afflicted by mitral and tricuspid valve conditions, there are no FDA-approved transcatheter mitral or tricuspid valve replacement options available.
