Expanding indications for transcatheter aortic valve replacement
(Expert Reviews Ltd., 2014)
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has emerged as an accepted indication for non-operable patients with severe symptomatic native aortic valve stenosis (AS) and as a reasonable alternative for high-risk surgical ...
Bovine pericardial patch augmentation of one insufficient aortic valve cusp with twenty-three-year positive clinical follow-up independent of the patch degeneration
Scientific progress shall ultimately boost the current acceptance level for conservative aortic valve surgery. The present text aimed to report the 23-year long-term follow-up of one patient operated with bovine pericardium ...
Transfemoral implantation of CoreValve Evolut-R aortic prosthesis in patient with prior ball-cage mechanical mitral valve prosthesis
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement remains challenge in patients with ball-cage-type mechanical valve in mitral position. Potential under-expansion of the percutaneous valve and interaction between the mitral ballcage ...
Litoplastía iliaco-femoral para implante transcatéter de válvula aórtica
(Sociedad Médica Santiago, 2020)
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has a lower perioperative risk than traditional surgery mostly when the transfemoral access is used. Some patients have anatomical conditions that contraindicate the use of ...
Mechanical strain induces the production of spheroid mineralized microparticles in the aortic valve through a RhoA/ROCK-dependent mechanism
Calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) is a chronic disorder characterized by an abnormal mineralization of the leaflets, which is accelerated in bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). It is suspected that mechanical strain may ...
Implantación percutánea transeptal de válvula protésica aórtica sobre bioprótesis mitral degenerada
(Sociedad Médica de Santiago, Chile, 2021)
Reintervention of a mitral degenerated bioprosthesis has a high surgical risk, especially in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities. We report a 74 years old female with two previous cardiac surgical procedures and ...
