Heart Valve Frames

Professional valve manufacturing is our matter of heart

  • Balloon-expandable, self-expandable (NiTi) or non-expandable (direct aortic) valves
  • Wide range of materials: NiTi, 316L medical, MP35N, L605, Phynox ...
  • Superior dimensional accuracy
  • Excellent surface quality

Heart Valve Frames

The transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) also referred as percutaneous aortic valve replacement (PAVR) has become the standard in heart valve surgery.
Since the start of this revolutionary technique, MeKo is manufacturing the backbone, the metallic frames of the valves with highest quality and an unmet fatigue life.
