Hemodynamics and early clinical performance of the St Background:The St. Jude Medical Regent valve is the next-generation bileaflet aortic prosthesis, modified from the currently marketed St. Jude Medical mechanical valve to achieve a larger geometric orifice without changing the existing design of the pivot mechanism or blood-contact surface areas. The present study reports the hemodynamic and early clinical results of
Do not pass catheters or other instruments through St. Jude Medical mechanical heart valves. This could result in scratched or damaged valve components, leaflet fracture, or dislodgment. Cut suture ends short, especially in the vicinity of the pivot guards, to prevent leaflet impingement. PRECAUTIONS. Valve

CAUTION:Sizers are supplied non-sterile, and must be cleaned and sterilized prior to each use. Do not use cracked, crazed, or deformed sizers. Use only Model TF2000 sizers to size the valve.
Mechanical Valves:Tissue Valves:Annuloplasty RingsNon-clinical testing has demonstrated that St. Jude Medical (SJM) heart valves and annuloplasty rings can be scanned safely under the following conditions: Static magnetic field of 3 Tesla or less Spatial gradient of 525 Gauss/cm or less
Jun 01, 2001 · 1. Introduction. Though bileaflet design appeared in the early 1960s, the first bileaflet prosthetic heart valve to obtain large acceptance was the St. Jude Medical valve (SJM, St. Jude Medical, Inc., St. Paul, Minn.), introduced in clinical practice in October 1977.
On-X versus St Jude Medical Regent mechanical aortic valve Objective We aimed to compare the early haemodynamic data of the On-X and St Jude Medical (SJM) Regent bileaflet mechanical prostheses in the aortic position. Methods A retrospective study was performed using data collected prospectively for a national database. Thirty-three patients who had aortic On-X valve (On-X group) and 33 matched patients who had aortic SJM Regent valve
