How it Works

The Sentinel system is delivered at the beginning of the TAVR procedure via a small tube inserted through a small puncture in the right wrist.

Using a minimally-invasive catheter, two filters are placed in the two main arteries between the heart and the brain. The filters of the Sentinel system collect debris throughout the procedure, thereby preventing it from traveling to the brain.

At the completion of the TAVR procedure, the filters and collected debris are removed from the patient.
