Welcome to ESPOIR

Beginning in January 2012, the European Union will fund the European Clinical Study for the Application of Regenerative Heart Valves (ESPOIR) trial, coordinated by the Hannover Medical School, Germany, with a grant of 5.2 Million Euros for a period of four years. The aim of ESPOIR is to transplant a heart valve, which is tolerated by the patient’s immune system, lasts a lifetime and, for children, even holds the potential to grow with the patient.
