The two main techniques of valve sparing aortic root replacement (VSRR) are remodelling and reimplantation. There is concern that the aortic annulus, which is not stabilized in remodelling technique, ...
The bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) frequently requires surgical intervention for aortic regurgitation (AR) and aneurysm. Valve-preserving surgery for BAV has evolved over the last 25 years.
Aneurysms of the sinuses of Valsalva are defined as dilatation of the aortic root region between the aortic annulus and the sinotubular junction. Isolated aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are rare c...
At our institution, we actively perform aortic valve neocuspidization (AVNeo) for aortic valve stenosis (AS) with a small annulus. In this report, we aimed to evaluate the midterm outcome of AVNeo for...
The influence of complex bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) flow patterns on net intraluminal aortic pressure, both among patients with and without significant aortic stenosis, is unknown. Pressure drop (PD)...
The HAART 200 "Aortic Annuloplasty during Bicuspid Aortic Valve Reconstruction" Trial is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the H...
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 ...
Prospective non interventional, observational registry of 150 patients undergoing TAVI with Evolut platform for bicuspid aortic stenosis.
The objective of the trial is to evaluate the procedural safety and efficacy of the Medtronic TAVR system in patients with bicuspid aortic anatomy and severe aortic stenosis at low risk fo...
Bicuspid Aortic Valve (BAV) is the most common congenital heart disease affecting 1-2% of the population. The aortic dilation and aortic valve degeneration are common complications in pati...
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.
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.
One of the eight permanent teeth, two on either side in each jaw, between the canines (CUSPID) and the molars (MOLAR), serving for grinding and crushing food. The upper have two cusps (bicuspid) but the lower have one to three. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p822)
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).
Multinucleated cells (fused macrophages) seen in granulomatous inflammations such as tuberculosis, syphilis, sarcoidosis, and deep fungal infections. They resemble foreign-body giant cells (GIANT CELLS, FOREIGN BODY) but Langhans giant cells contain less chromatin and their nuclei are arranged peripherally in a horseshoe-shaped pattern. Langhans giant cells occur frequently in delayed hypersensitivity.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
