Abbott Laboratories said that a Food and Drug Administration panel voted in favor of the safety profile of its heart device Kind TriClip System.

The medical device company on Tuesday said that the Circulatory System Devices Panel of the Medical Devices Advisory Committee also confirmed the effectiveness and risk/benefit profile of the device to treat people with tricuspid regurgitation.

Tricuspid regurgitation is a type of heart valve disease that occurs when the tricuspid valve doesn't close tight enough.
