Regurgitation due to a paravalvular leak (PVL) is a complication that may affect patients undergoing surgical mechanical or bioprosthetic heart valve replacement. PVL can also occur after transcathete...
Many studies have shown that transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) improves outcomes in patients with severe aortic stenosis in whom a classical surgical procedure cannot be performed due to ...
A 67-year-old man with a dilated cardiomyopathy and severe aortic regurgitation (AR) secondary to a traumatic cusp lesion was referred to our institution because of progressive worsening of dyspnea. A...
Paravalvular leak (PVL) is a complication related to the surgical implantation of left-sided prosthetic valves. The prevalence of paravalvular regurgitation ranges between 5 and 20%. Left-sided prosth...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement has been established as the standard of care for inoperable patients and a valid alternative for high-risk individuals with severe symptomatic native aortic sten...
The aim of the present study is to assess in a "real life" caselist the outcome of three different surgical approches for isolated aortic valve surgery in terms of surgery times, morbidity...
To evaluate the performance, efficacy and safety of the percutaneous implantation of the CoreValve® prosthetic aortic valve in patients with severe symptomatic native aortic valve stenosi...
A prospective single arm study evaluating feasibility and safety of a catheter-based transapical implantation of the Ventor Embracer™ aortic valve bioprosthesis in patients with severe a...
The primary objective of the CAVIAAR study is to prove that aortic valve sparing is associated with a 50% increase of 3 years-survival rate without increased mortality or serious increased...
This study will evaluate hemodynamic and functional changes resulting from valve intervention in patients with severe aortic stenosis undergoing valve replacement (AVR) or transcatheter ao...
The downward displacement of the cuspal or pointed end of the trileaflet AORTIC VALVE causing misalignment of the cusps. Severe valve distortion can cause leakage and allow the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to aortic regurgitation.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
A type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
