Condition aortic valve stenosis
Treatment sapien xt™ transapical aortic valve replacement
Sponsor Edwards Lifesciences
Start date September 2009
End date February 2011
Trial size 218 participants
Trial identifier NCT01238835, 2009-06


A single arm, prospective multicenter non-randomized confirmatory clinical trial evaluating the Edwards SAPIEN XT™ transcatheter heart valve (model 9300TFX; "study valve"), the next generation Ascendra™ transapical delivery system, and crimper accessories. The trial includes a premarket confirmatory cohort to evaluate the system performance as well as a Post Market Clinical Follow-up phase involving expanded enrollment and long-term follow-up of all patients to evaluate valve performance out to 5 years.

Description Edwards Lifesciences obtained CE marking authorization for transapical delivery / implantation of the Edwards SAPIEN™ transcatheter heart valve (model 9000TFX) using the first generation Ascendra™ delivery system in 2007 and introduced these devices for commercial distribution in the European Economic Area (EEA) the same year. This trial incorporates iterated products for this procedure. Purpose: The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the acute safety and effectiveness of the SAPIEN XT™ study valve and next generation Ascendra™ delivery components. Enrollment: In total, a minimum of 150 patients will be enrolled to receive the study valve under this protocol. An application for CE marking authorization will be submitted to the EC Notified Body during the course of the trial. Enrollment of the remaining patients will continue after the receipt of CE mark certification as part of a post market surveillance plan. Follow-up Intervals: Subject data collection will include clinical information at baseline and during the index procedure. Subjects will undergo clinical follow-up at discharge, 30 days, 6 month annually for 5 years. Clinical Sites: Approximately 10 sites in Europe PREVAIL TA Continued Access: After inclusion of 150 patients, continued access will be provided to patients requiring a 29 mm valve until receipt of CE-mark. Approximately 50 patients are expected to be enrolled in the continued access and it will be conducted under the same protocol with the same inclusion/exclusion criteria and primary and secondary endpoints. Up to 10 additional sites will be added.
