Prosthetic valve removal for reoperative valve replacement is time consuming and has a risk of damage to the heart because of severe adhesions. We have developed a quick, easy and safe technique to re...
Prosthetic heart valve (PHV) dysfunction is a rare but serious complication whose optimal management may be challenging and requires a multidisciplinary approach. Treatment success ultimately depends ...
Bioprosthetic valve dysfunction was treated in the past with redo open heart surgery. The need to identify occult leaflet infection was not an important requirement as all valve tissue was removed dur...
Heart valve prostheses are the therapy of choice for patients with severe heart valve diseases. Two types of prostheses that can be implanted in patients are available: biological and mechanical. Thou...
A significant number of patients with prosthetic valve thrombosis have a prothrombin time international normalised ratio in the therapeutic range at presentation. Surgery may not be possible in many p...
This is a prospective, open, single arm, multi-center clinical study in China. The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the PERCEVAL S heart va...
The purpose of the proposed study is to assess the occurrence of bleeding, valve-related thromboembolism and valve thrombosis with the On-X Aortic Prosthetic Heart Valve when targeted at a...
This study is a multi-center, prospective, non-randomized, observational study. The objectives of this study are to confirm the clinical safety and efficacy of the SJM Epic valve.
One of the most common residual lesions in adult survivors of pediatric cardiac surgery is pulmonary valve disease, particularly regurgitation. Multiple studies have demonstrated that pla...
This is a trial to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Mitroflow Aortic Heart Valve when used to replace a diseased or dysfunctional aortic valve or aortic valve prosthesis.
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.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
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.
Downward displacement of any one of the HEART VALVES from its normal position. This usually results in failed valve closure.
Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.
