The PARTNER II Trial: Placement of AoRTic TraNscathetER Valves - PII B

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the SAPIEN XTâ„¢ THV with the associated delivery system for inoperable patients with severe symptomatic native aortic stenosis.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

Inclusion Criteria

   1. Patient was symptomatic from his/her aortic valve stenosis, as demonstrated by NYHA
   Functional Class II or greater.

   2. The probability of death or serious, irreversible morbidity is greater than or equal
   to 50%.

   3. The heart team agreed (and verified in the case review process) that valve
   implantation would likely benefit the patient.

   4. The study patient or the study patient's legal representative was informed of the

   2. Significant aortic disease, including marked tortuosity (hyperacute bend), aortic arch
   atheroma [especially if thick (> 5 mm), protruding or ulcerated] or narrowing
   (especially with calcification and surface irregularities) of the abdominal or
   thoracic aorta, severe "unfolding" and tortuosity of the thoracic aorta.

   3. Currently participating in an investigational drug or another device study. Note:
   Trials requiring extended follow-up for products that were investigational, but have
   since become commercially available, are not considered investigational trials.

   4. It is known that the patient is currently enrolled in the PARTNER I Trial or was
