What is the central question of this study? An increasing number of patients are in need of aortic valve replacement. It remains unresolved how surgical aortic valve replacement affects the cardiopulmonary and muscle function during exercise. What is the main finding and its importance? Early after the surgical replacement of the aortic valve a significant decline in pulmonary function was observed, which was followed by a decline in skeletal muscle function in the subsequent weeks of recovery. These date reiterate, despite restoration of aortic valve function, the need of a tailored rehabilitation program for the respiratory and peripheral muscular system.

Aortic coarctation and bicuspid aortic valve frequently coexist. Correction frequently require an aggressive, invasive approach. Here we present a case of a two-stage minimally invasive intervention w...
Aortic valve disease is the most common valvular heart disease. Surgical aortic valve replacement remains the gold-standard of treatment. Recently, minimally invasive approaches have been developed to...
Sutureless biological valves for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR), characterized by the absence of anchoring sutures at the aortic annulus, are gaining popularity because of ease and reprod...
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...
This study sought to evaluate the trends in isolated surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) procedures across hospitals with different transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) volumes among Med...
The aim of the present study is to assess in a "real life" caselist the outcome of three different surgical approches for isolated aortic valve surgery in terms of surgery times, morbidity...

Reconstruction of the aortic valve using the tri-leaflet repair technique is non-inferior with regard to effective orifice area (EOA) to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) with a bio...
This study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve replacement in aortic Stenosis.
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.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
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.

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).
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...
