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...
Infective endocarditis after transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a life-threating complication, resulting in high in-hospital and one-year mortality. With the ongoing evolution of transcatheter...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement becomes an equivalent alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement also in low-surgical-risk patients. Prosthetic valve endocarditis following transcatheter ...
Mitral annular calcification (MAC) has been associated with adverse outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) but has been investigated in isolation of co-existent ...
Infective endocarditis following a Mitraclip procedure might be an under-recognized complication. We describe the case of infective endocarditis by Bartonella henselae as a late complication in a pati...
To evaluate whether patients after successful transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), who have concomitant, moderate to severe mitral regurgitation (MR) benefit from a...
To demonstrate that the Conveyor System can safely provide left ventricular access to deliver the SAPIEN 3 (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) transcatheter heart valve in patients ...
People with coronary artery disease (CAD) or people who have had a heart attack may develop a leak in the mitral valve of their heart and may therefore need to undergo surgery to fix the v...
The study compares the efficacies of two surgical procedures for the treatment of mitral valve prolapse due to myxomatous degeneration of the mitral valve: the chordae replacement and the ...
This study aims at studying the frequency of infective endocarditis after transcatheter aortic valve replacement/implantation
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.
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
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.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
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.
