The Omnicarbon disc opens up to 80° and closes at 12°, thus achieving the tilting range of 68°. The latest model of Omnicarbon has the ring manufactured also from pyrolytic carbon.

A Slimline. b Overline 63 Overview of the Valve Replacement Devices mechanical heart valve designed for totally supraannular implantation (both the housing and sewing ring are placed supraannulary) [27]. In 1994 a CarboMedics universal valve, Orbis, was launched, enabling implantation of the same valve either to the aortic or mitral position. The semilunar leaflets of CarboMedics valves tilt up to 78° and close at 25°, which gives a tilting range of 53°. Two other bileaflet valves are the ATS Medical (since 1992), standard type and AP type (advanced performance) for small annuli [24], and OnX (since 1996), with different rings.

The closing component of the valve is a silastic ball, which is held within a stellite alloy cage (opened position). 4). Another well-known valve is the Smeloff–Cutter valve, which was introduced into clinical use in 1964 (but has not been implanted since 1988). In this model the silastic ball does not sit at the titanium alloy ring but is stopped by a second smaller cage. 5) [3]. After implantation of the caged-ball valves, patients experienced dramatic hemodynamic improvement but suffered from frequent thromboembolic complications.
