Edwards Lifesciences: Cramer's Top Takeaways

Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.

For an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Mike Mussallem, chairman and CEO of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) , the medical device maker with shares that are up 13% over the past year.

Mussallem explained that Edwards was founded on revolutionary heart valve technology and over the past 20 years, that technology has only been getting better and better. What was once an open heart procedure requiring more than a week in the hospital and weeks thereafter of tough recovery has now been completely transformed.

Mussallem continued by explaining that Edwards' newest heart valve can be squeezed into a catheter and implanted intravenously in about an hour. Patients don't even require general anesthesia and can be awake for the procedure. These new valves are better for everyone -- with better technology, better outcomes and better economics.

Cramer said shares of Edwards Lifesciences are not done going up, as the company's products are revolutionary.
