Alkaptonuria, a rare disorder of homogentisic acid metabolism, can lead to aortic valvular calcification and stenosis. We present the case of a 71-year-old woman with alkaptonuria-associated aortic st...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become the cornerstone for aortic valve intervention since the first implantation in 2002. Recent advances with novel devices and introduction into lo...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement becomes an equivalent alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement also in low-surgical-risk patients. Prosthetic valve endocarditis following transcatheter ...
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...
We investigated the outcomes of patients who underwent Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) with and without Balloon Aortic Valvuloplasty (BAV) using the SAPIEN 3 (S3) valve.
The spreading of transcatheter aortic valve implantation has paradoxically increased the spectrum of indications for balloon aortic valvuloplasty. Balloon aortic valvuloplasty is currently...
Multicenter, prospective, observational study in aortic stenosis (AS) patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) or high-risk patients undergoing aortic valve repla...
The FinnValve investigators planned a nationwide registry to investigate the early and late outcome of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) compared to surgical aortic valve repl...
A randomized clinical trial investigating transcatheter (TAVR) versus surgical (SAVR) aortic valve replacement in patients 75 years of age or younger suffering from severe aortic valve ste...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of transcatheter aortic valve replacement in Chinese population.
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.
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).
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 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.
Lipitor was the best selling drug in 2009, with the 2009 annual sales coming in at over $5m for its company, Pfizer Inc. Lipitor is the brand name for an atorvastatin calcium medication that is prescribed to lower cholesterol and triglycerides in the the...
