Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) affects a significant percentage of our elderly population and younger subjects with familial hypercholesterolemia. Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] has been associated with AVS in recent genetic studies. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of Lp(a) on human aortic valve interstitial cells (HAVICs), and to identify apolipoproteins and phospholipids in diseased human aortic valves.

Unicuspid aortic valve (UAV) is a rare congenital anomaly of aorta associated with a faster progress of valvular dysfunction, aortic dilatation and with necessity for more frequent controls and precis...
Aortic valve-in-valve implantation for prosthetic valve dysfunction is a good alternative to reoperative valve replacement. There are some limitations to this approach including the risk of coronary o...
Aortic valve stenosis (AS) is the most frequently observed valvular heart disease. Once it is symptomatic the mortality rapidly increases. The diagnostic gold standard is transthoracic echocardiograph...
A 74-year-old man presented with progressive dyspnea on exertion. History included peripheral arterial disease and coronary artery bypass grafting with aortic valve replacement 12 years ago. Subsequen...
Treatment of aortic valve stenosis has been changing since the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The present study investigates the treatment of aortic valve stenosis i...
The FinnValve investigators planned a nationwide registry to investigate the early and late outcome of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) compared to surgical aortic valve repl...
To evaluate the safety and performance of the HLT System in patients with severe aortic stenosis who present at high risk for aortic valve replacement surgery.
According to current European Recommendations on valvular heart disease (VHD), "classical" severe aortic stenosis (AS) is defined by an aortic valve area (AVA) ≤1 cm2 and indexed AVA ≤...
Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) is the most frequent valvular disease. The severity of the obstruction of the left ventricle (LV) is essentially analyzed today by echocardiography Doppler, whi...
This study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve replacement in aortic Stenosis.
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 pathological constriction occurring in the region above the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region below the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
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).
