5 Single-wire nitinol frame and mesh filter with pore size of 130μm designed to deflect cerebral emboli during TAVR while allowing maximal blood flow Device is positioned across all 3 cerebral vessels and maintained by a stabilizer in the innominate Delivered via 9 Fr sheath from femoral artery The TriGuard Device

6 DEFLECT III Study Overview 5 Design: Multicenter prospective single-blind randomized controlled trial at 13 sites (EU/IL) Objective: To evaluate the safety, efficacy and performance of TriGuard protection compared with unprotected TAVR. Sample Size: Exploratory study with no formal hypothesis testing. 86 patients selected to benchmark events for the design of a pivotal RCT. Embolic Protection (TriGuard) Unprotected TAVR (Control) Unprotected TAVR (Control) Subjects with AS undergoing TAVR 1:1 Randomization

7 DEFLECT III Eligibility Criteria Key Inclusion Criteria  Patients undergoing TAVR via the transfemoral approach  Exclusion Criteria  Stroke or TIA within prior 6 months  Any other cardiac intervention within prior 2 weeks  Aortic arch or innominate anatomy deemed to prevent positioning and stability of the device (ostium diameter 40 mm)  Contraindication to cerebral MRI (e.g., pacemaker)

8 Screening Procedure Post-Procedure 30 days DEFLECT III Procedures & Assessments NIHSS mRS Neurocog* 4±2 days TAVR ± TriGuard DW-MRI NIHSS mRS Neurocog* *Neurocognitive test battery includes the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and computerized CogState Research Test. Baseline and 30-day evaluations include supplemental Digit Symbol Substitution, Trailmaking, and Word Fluency Tests. DW-MRI NIHSS mRS Neurocog* ̴30 days

9 DEFLECT III Endpoints Primary Safety Endpoint (ITT population)  In-hospital MACCE defined as the composite of death, stroke, life- threatening or disabling bleeding, AKI (2/3), and major vascular complications (VARC-2) Secondary Performance (ITT population)  Technical success: successful positioning (complete 3-vessel coverage verified by angiography) and retrieval without TAVR interference Secondary Efficacy (ITT and Per Treatment* populations)  DW-MRI: Frequency, number, and average single, maximal, and total lesion volumes by DW-MRI at 4+2 days (range 2-6 days)  Neurocognitive: Postoperative and change from baseline to postprocedure and 30 days *Per treatment (PT) population: subjects with complete TriGuard cerebral vessel coverage throughout the procedure (core lab adjudicated)

23 Clinical Efficacy: CogState-Test Results (PT) p=0.043 p=0.028 Short term memory test Protection is associated with improved short and delayed memory at discharge Delayed memory test Age Adjusted

24 Conclusions 1.Use of the TriGuard was safe and provided complete cerebral coverage in 87% of cases 2.TriGuard protection increased the proportion of patients completely free of ischemic brain lesions by more than 50% and reduced single and maximum lesion volume by about 40% 3.TriGuard appears to prevent cognitive decline and was associated with improved short-term and delayed memory at discharge compared to controls 4.Stroke was under-reported based on systematic NIHSS assessment 5.Protected patients had a 10% absolute lower stroke rate 6.DEFLECT III provides proof of concept of the benefits of neuroprotection with the TriGuard device during TAVR and will benchmark event rates for a planned definitive randomized US approval trial


26 Death Events EventArm Time to Event (days) Comment Cardiovascular Death Control0 Following BAV, transfemoral placement of Edwards valve immediately followed by pericardial effusion. Sternotomy and circulatory assist performed, followed by evidence of Ao ring rupture. Cardiovascular Death Control0 Following BAV, hemodynamic instability with suspicion of Ao ring rupture. An Edwards valve was implanted prior to pt. death. Cardiovascular Death TriGuard14 Subject with disabling ischemic stroke. Primary cause of death: pneumonia, contributing causes: cerebral multi-infarct syndrome, vascular disease and COPD.

27 Neurological Events EventArm Time to Event (days) Comment Ischemic Stroke, Non-disabling Control1 MDT CV implanted too deep → manipulation prior to implantation. Post TAVI blurred vision, slurred speech. Resolved at 30 D F/U. Stroke, Undetermined, Non-Disabling Control2 Edwards valve. 2 days following TAVI changes in visual field were reported. Subject was unable to fix gaze at times. Neurological consult performed. MRI not performed. Ischemic Stroke, Non-Disabling TriGuard1 TriGuard maintained position, 3/3 vessels covered. Presentation included slurred speech, right sided weakness. At one month was still under neurology team care but residing at home. Ischemic Stroke, Disabling TriGuard1 TriGuard lost position during TAVI with 0/3 vessel coverage. Prior existing TAVI device, Edwards implant. Bilateral ischemic stroke (anterior and posterior) confirmed by MRI/CT. NIHSS: 30, MRS: 5. Subject died of pneumonia day 14.
