Over the last decade, aortic valve replacement with rapid-deployment biological bioprosthesis has become a common alternative technique to mechanical or biological stented valves for high-risk patients. A 63 year old patient underwent uncomplicated valve replacement with the Edwards Intuity valve. 2 months post operation, the patient had progredient dyspnea. Echocardiography showed a dislocated aortic valve reaching into the left ventricular outflow tract, impairing the anterior mitral valve leaflet. Both valves were replaced by a conventional stented bioprosthesis. With this case, we report the first case of valve migration for the Edwards Intuity Elite rapid-deployment aortic valve and discuss possible explanations.

We present a simpler and faster way of implanting the Edwards Intuity Elite rapid deployment valve system. Annular sizing and guiding suture placement are performed in the usual manner. After the valv...
Rapid deployment bioprostheses (RDB) have been recently introduced into clinical practice for the treatment of severe aortic valve stenosis. Aim of this retrospective multicenter study was to assess e...
Sutureless and rapid-deployment aortic valves have enlarged the selection of prostheses available for surgical aortic valve replacement. However, the rate of postoperative pacemaker implantation seems...

Pathological conditions (Disorder, SYNDROME, or DISEASE) whose SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS manifest late in the life of an individual.
Congenital dislocation of the hip generally includes subluxation of the femoral head, acetabular dysplasia, and complete dislocation of the femoral head from the true acetabulum. This condition occurs in approximately 1 in 1000 live births and is more common in females than in males.
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.
Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.
A syndrome characterized by multiple system abnormalities including DWARFISM; PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS; PREMATURE AGING; and HEARING LOSS. It is caused by mutations of a number of autosomal recessive genes encoding proteins that involve transcriptional-coupled DNA REPAIR processes. Cockayne syndrome is classified by the severity and age of onset. Type I (classical; CSA) is early childhood onset in the second year of life; type II (congenital; CSB) is early onset at birth with severe symptoms; type III (xeroderma pigmentosum; XP) is late childhood onset with mild symptoms.
