Structural Heart

Pre-procedural planning

Successful structural heart interventions require innovation to navigate the high risks and complexity. 3D-CT planning and 3D printing reveal unprecedented insights while preparing for structural heart interventions.  


The adoption of 3D in the modern medical setting is inevitable — bring clarity to complexity with these technologies.

Clinical evidence

Discover the facts on 3D-CT planning for structural heart interventions

100% procedural success with 3D-CT vs. 92% with 2D-TEE 
“CT-guided LAAO case planning was associated with improved device selection, accuracy, and procedural efficiency.” 

25% reduced procedure time with 3D-CT vs. 2D-TEE 
“LAAO case planning using 3D-CT was significantly more efficient with respect to device utilization, guide catheters, and procedure time.”  

75% reduced neo-LVOT assessment time with 3D-CT vs. traditional CT planning  
“Time to complete neo-LVOT assessment in 2 device positions was found to be between 1 and 5 min.” 

More consistent neo-LVOT prediction with 3D-CT (0.99 ICC) vs. with traditional CT planning (0.87 ICC)
“With the 3D semi-automatic tool, two modelers estimated a more reliable neo-LVOT area than with the 2D centerline method.” 

I would definitely encourage clinicians to try 3D planning because it will open up a new world of planning. I am quite sure that they will appreciate the insights that it provides and the fact that it is beyond complementary to what they’re used to. It really has added value to procedural planning in terms of patient selection, strategy selection, and procedural execution.
