TTK Healthcare's most significant contribution to healthcare is the manfacture and distribution of India's first indigenous heart valve prosthesis - the tilting-disc TTK Chitra Heart Valve. This is the only Indian-made heart valve and is the most price-friendly in the world. So far, over 50,000 TTK Chitra Heart Valves have been successfully implanted in patients.

Design and Development
Unique in design, construction and fabrication, the TTK Chitra Heart Valve Prosthesis is one of the extensively researched, tested and clinically evaluated device in India.

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 development also followed international protocols applicable to heart valve prosthesis.

Designed for long life, the development of the TTK Chitra Heart Valve was based on accelerated durability tests, amply confirmed by measurement of wear of valves explanted after many years of animal implantation. It is no mean achievement that the projected durability of the TTK Chitra Heart Valve far exceeds the life span of even the youngest recipient.
