  • Publication number: 20220257367
    Abstract: An implantable prosthetic valve can include a frame movable between a radially compressed and a radially expanded configuration. The frame can include a first strut having a first locking feature disposed on a radially facing inner surface of the strut and a second strut having a second locking feature disposed on a radially facing outer surface of the strut.
