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 ...
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 ...

Relato de uma paciente de sete anos apresentando progressiva intolerância ao esforço. A criança apresentava taquicardia e sopro pansistólico de maior intensidade no foco aórtico. O ecocardiograma evidenciava hipertrofia ...
Exercise Echocardiography in Cryopreserved Aortic Homografts: Comparison of a Prototype Stentless, a Stented Bioprosthesis, and Native Aortic Valves
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
Background: Aortic valve replacement with a cryopreserved aortic homograft (CH) is an attractive alternative to bioprosthesis implantation. The aim of the study was to compare the hemodynamic performance of CH implanted ...

Prognostic Significance of Myocardial Fibrosis Quantification by Histopathology and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients With Severe Aortic Valve Disease
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2010)
Objectives We sought to determine whether the quantitative assessment of myocardial fibrosis (MF), either by histopathology or by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (ce-MRI), could help predict long-term survival ...
Association between degenerative aortic valve disease and long-term exposure to cardiovascular risk factors: results of the longitudinal population-based KORA/MONICA survey
(OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2009)
Degenerative aortic valve disease (DAVD), a common finding in the elderly, is associated with an increased risk of death due to cardiovascular causes. Taking advantage of its longitudinal design, this study evaluates the ...
