The On-X prosthetic heart valve offers:

  • more protection from complications as seen in clinical trial comparisons
  • the possibility of one valve for life instead of the temporary choice of tissue replacements
  • the possibility of reduced anticoagulation medication
  • more flow especially in small size aortic valves

On-X outperforms other valves in hemodynamic performance as seen in FDA trial comparisons.

Clinical trials have shown that the On-X valve surpasses all other valves on the market in hemodynamic performance. The valve received full pre-market approval from the FDA in March of 2002.
In January of 2006, the FDA approved the first and only IDE (Investigational Device Exemption) lowered anticoagulation trial (PROACT Study–reduced INR) for a mechanical valve to be conducted at 40 sites in the United States for the On-X Prosthetic Heart Valve.
