The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the incidence and surgical outcomes of patients with native infective (IE) and prosthetic (PVE) aortic valve endocarditis during the past decade at a single institution.

Aortic coarctations in adults are mainly represented by recurrent critical narrowing at the site of previous surgical correction, or less frequently by native forms of complex obstructive malformation...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement becomes an equivalent alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement also in low-surgical-risk patients. Prosthetic valve endocarditis following transcatheter ...
We describe a conceptual approach involving the use of self-made xenopericardial grafts in combination with biological aortic valve prostheses and in addition using a xenopericardial tubes for aortic ...
The optimal choice of valve prosthesis in surgical aortic valve replacement for infective endocarditis (IE) is controversial. We studied outcomes after mechanical versus biological prosthetic valve su...
The presence of a small aortic annulus poses a considerable challenge in the management of patients with severe aortic stenosis, especially in elderly women, where it is a very frequent finding. The o...
Surgical valve replacement is commonly performed in patients with severe aortic valve disease. In small aortic annulus, implantation of bioprosthetic valves can be associated with limited ...
To evaluate the performance, efficacy and safety of the percutaneous implantation of the CoreValve® prosthetic aortic valve in patients with severe symptomatic native aortic valve stenosi...
The Nitinol Circular Blade (NCB) is indicated for use in patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis requiring aortic valve replacement, who are going to be operated by conventional sternoto...
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 objective of this trial is to confirm that the modifications to tissue processing, valve sterilization and packaging do not raise any new questions of safety and effectiveness in subje...
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.
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
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).
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.
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...
