The objective of this study was to determine whether valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation (VIV-TAVI) is associated with better survival than redo surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in patients with degenerated aortic valve bioprostheses, and we performed a meta-analysis of comparative studies.

Data on the effects of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) compared to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes are limited. To assess the ...
The effects of surgical aortic valve replacement versus transcatheter aortic valve replacement on endothelial function are unknown. We investigated the effects of surgical and transcatheter aortic val...
Transcatheter heart valve-in-valve implantation in failed surgical bioprosthetic valves has shown promising outcomes, prompting the stepwise expansion of their applications in different clinical scena...
Because technology for valvular replacement continues to evolve, we expect it to be further reaching in the applications for intermediate- to high-risk surgical candidates. Although the patient popula...
A randomized clinical trial investigating transcatheter (TAVR) versus surgical (SAVR) aortic valve replacement in patients 75 years of age or younger suffering from severe aortic valve ste...
Assessment of feasibility, safety and outcomes of transcatheter valve interventions
The aim of this collaborative analysis is to evaluate stroke rates and mortality in patients undergoing TAVI with the self-expandable MCV prosthesis compared to the balloon-expandable ES v...
A prospective, single arm clinical investigation evaluating safety and effectiveness/performance of the Microport CardioFlow VitaFlowTM II - Transcatheter Aortic Valve System for the treat...
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...
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.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Abnormal protrusion of one or more of the leaflets of TRICUSPID VALVE into the RIGHT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into right atrium leading to TRICUSPID VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS. Its most common cause is not primary valve abnormality but rather the dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the tricuspid annulus.
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
