About this clinical trial

The Encompass clinical trial is a groundbreaking study investigating the potential of the F2 Filter and Delivery System to revolutionize transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) by safeguarding patients against stroke-causing debris. This innovative device aims to capture and eliminate embolic material, harmful particles that can dislodge during TAVR and travel to the brain, potentially leading to stroke.

By participating in this trial, individuals undergoing TAVR have the opportunity to receive cutting-edge treatment while contributing to the advancement of medical care. The trial’s findings will determine whether the F2 Filter and Delivery System can enhance the safety and effectiveness of TAVR, offering patients a safer and more effective alternative to traditional open-heart surgery.
