The increasing of lifetime industrial countries population leads to widespreading diseases of age. Dramatic growth of sclerodegenerative heart valve diseases in last decades is one of the best examples. We observed 814 patients of different gender and age with acquired heart valve diseases using echocardiography. We found out that the most common heart valve disease is degenerative aortic stenosis. Unfortunately, nowadays in Russia no more than 20% of the necessary operations on aortic valve are performed, the main reason of it is, more likely, insufficient and untimely diagnosis of the defect. However, the surgery of vice serves only as a mechanical elimination of the problem, without affecting the causes which led to its development. So we need modern data about sclerodegenerative heart valve diseases epidemiology and discloses actuality of the problem.

The prevalence of calcific aortic valve disease is increasing with aging of the population. Current treatment options for advanced or symptomatic aortic stenosis are limited to traditional surgical or...
Significant differences are mentioned in the progress of calcification between aortic and mitral valve. Evidence of inflammation in calcific aortic and mitral valve disease suggests that pathways of T...
Calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) is the most common valvular disorder in the elderly, with the incidence of 3% in general population of Western countries. The initial phase of CAVD is characterize...
Aortic valve replacement (AVR) for calcific aortic stenosis is associated with high rates of perioperative stroke and "silent" cerebral infarcts on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),...
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...
Although aortic valve replacement is recommended for any symptomatic severe calcific aortic stenosis, the therapeutic decision may be difficult. because of patient age and comorbidities. ...
The primary objective of the current study is to determine whether Ataciguat (HMR1766) slows progression of valve calcification in patients with moderate calcific aortic valve stenosis. S...
To establish the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards CENTERA Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) System in patients with symptomatic, severe, calcific aortic stenosis who are at intermedia...
The purpose of this study is - to determine the degree of endothelial dysfunction and inflammation in calcific aortic valve disease associated with coronary artery disease(CAD). ...
The objective of the REPRISE EDGE study is to confirm the acute performance and safety of the LOTUS Edge™ Valve System when used with the Lotus™ or iSleeve™ Introducer Set for transc...
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.
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 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 occurring in the region below 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.
