Chord-X® Pre-Measured Loops for Mitral Chordal Replacement is an artificial replacement prosthesis configured from nonabsorbable, monofilament suture manufactured from expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). The ePTFE Suture has been epanded to produce a porous microstructire which is approximately 50% air by volume. The suture is undyed and contains no additives. The Chord-X® Pre Measured Loops for Mitral Chordal Replacement have various product configurations comprised of different suture diametre, loop length and needle configurations.
Chord-X® Premeasured Loops come equipped with double-armed taper point needles attached. Each prosthesis has 2 PTFE pledgets for papillary attachment and 3 chordal suture loops for the leaflet, complete with needles and pre-tied knots. Each prosthesis is positioned on a series of base-plates for suture management. The base-plates protect the suture getting kinked, bent or otherwise damaged. If fewer chordal sutures are desired, excess segments can be removed without jeopardizing the rest of the prosthesis.
