A major limitation of the more widespread application of aortic valve reconstruction is the lack of a common framework for valve assessment that could be used to guide a standardized approach to aortic valve repair, similar to that used in reconstructive mitral valve surgery. Most patients with a regurgitant aortic valve are young and possess a specific subtype of a bicuspid aortic valve according to the Sievers classifications system. This video tutorial presents the technical aspects of a standardized approach for reconstruction of the regurgitant bicuspid aortic valve (Sievers type 1, L/R), which was developed during the past decade.

Aortopathy is common in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV).
Bicuspid aortic valve, one of the most common congenital cardiac malformations, is associated with other valvular abnormalities and aortopathies. It increases the risk of thoracic aortic aneurysm and ...
Unicuspid and bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) are congenital cardiac anomalies associated with valvular dysfunction and aortopathies occurring at a young age.
Several indications for sutureless aortic valve replacement (SU-AVR) have been a matter of debate. We evaluated our experience with Perceval-S (LivaNova group, Saluggia, Italy) SU-AVR in patients with...
Standard therapy for aortic root dilation in the setting of bicuspid aortic valves remains use of a composite valve conduit. The long-term durability of valve sparing root replacement (VSRR) in bicusp...
The HAART 200 "Aortic Annuloplasty during Bicuspid Aortic Valve Reconstruction" Trial is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the H...
Bicuspid Aortic Valve (BAV) is the most common congenital heart disease affecting 1-2% of the population. The aortic dilation and aortic valve degeneration are common complications in pati...
This study sought to evaluate changes in ascending aorta size after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BiAV) compared with patients with ...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the procedural and clinical outcomes of patients with bicuspid aortic valve stenosis undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
To observe the clinical outcomes of the different valve sizing strategies treating type-0 Bicuspid Aortic Stenosis (BAS) with self-expandable transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)...
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.
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.
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.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
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...
