Two new cardiovascular technologies subject to early benefit assessment in Germany

In early-mid November 2021, the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) has initiated an evaluation procedure for early benefit assessment for two new cardiovascular technologies (Revivent TC™ by BioVentrix and Trilogy™ Heart Valve System by JenaValve Technology) in heart failure, and aortic valve insufficiency and stenosis, respectively.

The decision to initiate the evaluation of transvascular, transcatheter-supported implantation of an aortic valve for the treatment of aortic valve insufficiency and stenosis (Trilogy™ Heart Valve System by JenaValve Technology), within the framework of the early benefit assessment in accordance with § 137h SGB V was made by the G-BA on November 8, 2021.

On November 15, 2021, the same decision was made by the G-BA for minimally invasive, left ventricular reconstruction using an anchoring system in heart failure (Revivent TC™ by BioVentrix).

This evaluation is a consequence of the application by a hospital for Innovation Funding (NUB), a short-term, intermediate reimbursement for new and innovative technologies in Germany.

The full details in German can be found here and here.
