Frequently asked questions

No, the device will not set of a metal detector. The device is visible on X-ray but will not hamper the ability to perform future medical imaging procedures.

However, you should notify your doctor that you have an artificial valve, especially before you have X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans. 

Your heart team will tell you how often you need to be seen and explain any special symptoms you should look for.

Information about the LOTUSEdge™ Aortic Valve

While we are pleased with the benefits of all of our coronary devices, there has recently been a global, voluntary recall of the LOTUS Edge™ Aortic Valve. This voluntary recall is related solely to the complexities of the delivery system and not to the implanted valve. At this time, there are no known safety concerns for patients.
