The heart valves, based on innovative work by Roskardioinvest company, has characteristics that closely mimic natural valves, particularly its ability to provide low resistance to blood flow and its low level of thrombogenicity. In addition to distinctions in the valve’s construction, the technology for measured nanolayered implantation of carbon in a titanium ring makes the valves unique.
Valves of the healthy heart
The precision composite carbonaceous layer has excellent biocompatibility. Moreover, it lowers thrombosis and provides a barrier that prevents metal ions of the titanium ring from entering the organism. The project is expected to run for 10 years. Production of the bicuspid valve began in the second quarter of 2010. The company also plans to produce the tricuspid valves with pyrolytic carbon cusps and polyamide cusps.

Tri- and bicuspid artificial heart valves
The Visual Science Company has cooperated with the RUSNANO Group since 2008, creating a wide range of high quality graphic information materials. Various infographics have been designed to demonstrate the technologies developed and implemented by RUSNANO project companies. The aim of each project is to demonstrate the principle of technology, nanotechnological components of the project and the advantages of the chosen solution compared with analogues.
The work of Visual Science is carried out in a single sheet or slide format. The modular structure of the infographics makes it possible to use it both as a whole piece or as separate components, which is convenient for preparing website illustrations or project reports or publications. Thus one material helps to solve almost all the issues with illustrating the information about the project.
The target audience for these graphics includes professionals in relevant areas, and a wide range of specialists in different fields without a technical background. Scientific accuracy, combined with the optimum degree of generalization allow for communicating equally effectively with target audiences with different background.
All the graphics have been used by the RUSNANO Group for 5 years or more. As usual, the feature of the Visual Science workflow includes the entire spectrum of tasks ranging from analyzing the scientific literature of the project to the preparation of the final graphics on the company’s side that allows saving valuable time of our customers.
I would like to express my gratitude to Visual Science and all its employees who participated in the Second Nanotechnology International Forum organization. Thank you for your professionalism and the high quality product
