Multi-CenTer Experience With the Rapid Deployment EDWARDS INTUITY Valve System FOR Aortic Valve ReplaceMent

Description

This is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center trial. Up to 950 subjects will be enrolled at up to 35 centers in the US. After re-placement of their aortic heart valve with the EDWARDS INTUITY valve system, each patient will have routine follow-up tests at the following intervals: discharge, 3 months, 1 year, and annually the-reafter for a minimum of five years.
