The TTK Heart Valve Division manufactures and distributes India's first indigenous heart valve prosthesis - the tilting-disc TTK Chitra Heart Valve. The only Indian-made heart valve, it is also the most price-friendly and so far nearly 18,000 Chitra valves have been successfully implanted in patients. Initially conceived in 1978, the heart valve being a critical implant, went through the most painstaking development for 12 years at the prestigious Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST), Trivandrum, India - an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
The Heart Valve Division also manufactures and markets Clinimesh - a versatile prosthesis for surgical reconstruction of thoracic and abdominal wall defects, Clinistern - stainless steel needled suture for sternum closure and Clinipatch - a versatile prosthesis for surgical reconstruction of septal wall defects.
