The study purpose is to compare the EDWARDS INTUITY valve system with commercially available stented aortic bioprostheses, in patients requiring aortic valve replacement surgery with coron...
The study purpose is to compare the EDWARDS INTUITY valve system in a minimal invasive surgical approach (MIS) with any commercially available aortic bioprosthesis in standard full ster-no...
The purpose of this active post-market surveillance study is to confirm that EDWARDS INTUITY Elite reduces cross clamp time (XCT) in MIS setting when compared to published data with a conv...
This is a prospctive, unrandomized multicentric registry which will enrol patients with an indication for aortc valve replacement combined with myocardial reperfusion (CABG). The registry ...
To evaluate the safety and performance of the HLT System in patients with severe aortic stenosis who present at high risk for aortic valve replacement surgery.
Over the last decade, aortic valve replacement with rapid-deployment biological bioprosthesis has become a common alternative technique to mechanical or biological stented valves for high-risk patient...
The objective of this study was to determine whether valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation (VIV-TAVI) is associated with better survival than redo surgical aortic valve replacement...
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...
Quadricuspid aortic valves are rare congenital malformations. Although aortic valve replacement is the first-choice treatment in most cases, aortic valve repair using a tricuspidization procedure has ...
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.
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.
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.
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).
