A Valve For Life

Patients younger than 70 years of age undergoing heart surgery with a mechanical heart valve live longer as compared to a tissue valve.5-7 Living longer is known as a “survival benefit” and this can be achieved with the On-X Aortic and Mitral Heart Valves made of pure pyrolytic carbon designed TO LAST A LIFETIME.5-9

On-X Aortic Valve 

Clinically Proven To Be Safer

The On-X Aortic Heart Valve is the only mechanical heart valve FDA approved and clinically proven to be safer10 with less anticoagulation and INR level of 1.5 – 2.0.1,11*

60% Less Reported Bleeding

With >60% less reported bleeding,10 On-X Aortic Heart Valve is clinically proven, and the only aortic valve supported by the AHA/ACC guidelines11 to be safely managed 50% closer to a normal INR level of 1.5 – 2.0 (vs. 2.0 – 3.0 for other mechanical valves)12

The Only Mechanical Aortic Heart Valve Currently Enrolling PROACT Xa
On-X Aortic Heart Valve is the only mechanical aortic heart valve currently enrolling into PROACT Xa13 clinical study to determine if participants with On-X Heart Valve can be safely maintained on Apixaban. Apixaban does not require INR level measurement.14

On-X Mitral Valve 

The Only Mitral Mechanical Valve Participating In An Ongoing Clinical Study For Less Aggressive Warfarin Therapy
The On-X Mitral Heart Valve is the only mitral mechanical heart valve participating in an ongoing clinical study to determine if patients with the On-X Mitral Heart Valve can be safely and effectively maintained on less aggressive anticoagulation therapy than is currently being recommended by ACC/AHA Guidelines.11,15
The PROACT Mitral Clinical Study

The PROACT Mitral Clinical Study is to determine if it is safe for On-X Mitral Heart Valve patients to maintain a long term INR level between 2.0 – 2.5 combined with an Aspirin dosage of 81 mg/day after 90 days from implant (the first 90 days have a target INR level of 2.5 – 3.5 with 81mg/day Aspirin).15 All other mechanical mitral valves must be maintained at an INR level of 2.5 – 3.5.11

On-X Aortic Valve 

Clinically Proven To Be Safer

The On-X Aortic Heart Valve is the only mechanical heart valve FDA approved and clinically proven to be safer10 with less anticoagulation and INR level of 1.5 – 2.0.1,11*

60% Less Reported Bleeding

With >60% less reported bleeding,10 On-X Aortic Heart Valve is clinically proven, and the only aortic valve supported by the AHA/ACC guidelines11 to be safely managed 50% closer to a normal INR level of 1.5 – 2.0 (vs. 2.0 – 3.0 for other mechanical valves)12

On-X Mitral Valve 

The On-X Mitral Heart Valve is The Only Mitral Mechanical Valve Participating in An Ongoing Clinical Study
The On-X Mitral Heart Valve is the only mitral mechanical heart valve participating in an ongoing clinical study to determine if patients with the On-X Mitral Heart Valve can be safely and effectively maintained on less aggressive anticoagulation therapy than is currently being recommended by ACC/AHA Guidelines.11,15
The PROACT Mitral Clinical Study
The PROACT Mitral Clinical Study is to determine if it is safe for On-X Mitral Heart Valve patients to maintain a long term INR level between 2.0 – 2.5 combined with an Aspirin dosage of 81 mg/day after 90 days from implant (the first 90 days have a target INR level of 2.5 – 3.5).15 All other mechanical mitral valves must be maintained at an INR level of 2.5 – 3.5.11
