Chord-X Mitral Chordal Replacement Products

ProductHeader_ChordX_600x200

Chord-X® Product Overview

Chord-X Pre-Measured Loops and the Chord-X Adjustable Suture System are artificial chordae
prostheses configured from non-absorbable, monofilament ePTFE suture with pledgets ready for mitral chordal implant.

The Chord-X Chordal Sizer measures and indicates the required Chord-X prosthesis size needed. The Chord-X Chordal Sizer corresponds with a Chord-X Pre-Measured Loops and Adjustable Suture System using a color-coded sizing system. The Sizer also provides two hooks for loop creation and knot-tying.

Compared to artificial chords made by the surgeon during the procedure, Chord-X Mitral Chordal Replacement Products are designed to save time, allow reproducible results, and simplify procedures.

Challenge: "Intraoperative creation of chordal loops is tedious and adds to operative time..."1

Solution: Chord-X - designed to save time, allow reproducible results, & simplify procedures*
