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...
This is a trial to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Mitroflow Aortic Heart Valve when used to replace a diseased or dysfunctional aortic valve or aortic valve prosthesis.
This study aims to explore and reduce readmission rates, while improving health-related quality of life through patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and after Heart Valve Surgery. This will be...
The purpose of this study is to compare the sound pressure levels (SPLs) from three of the most frequently implanted mechanical heart valve prostheses, in order to determine whether there ...
This is a trial to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Freedom SOLO heart valve when used to replace a diseased or dysfunctional aortic valve or aortic valve prosthesis.
Structural valve deterioration is a well-studied phenomenon in bioprosthetic heart valves. Conversely, structural valve deterioration after transcatheter aortic valve implantation is not as well-eluci...
Carcinoid heart disease most frequently involves the tricuspid or, more rarely, the pulmonary valve and presents with right heart failure as 5-HT is metabolized by the lung. Left-sided valve involveme...
Transcatheter heart valve-in-valve implantation in failed surgical bioprosthetic valves has shown promising outcomes, prompting the stepwise expansion of their applications in different clinical scena...
Patients with complex congenital heart disease often require multiple reoperations, resulting in increased rates of operative morbidity and mortality. Decellularized heart valves (DHVs) have led to re...
Valve-in-valve (ViV) procedures for failing bioprostheses carry a certain risk for device malfunction. We herein report a case of a failing Evolut R in a deteriorated Mitroflow, treated with a Sapien ...
Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.
A set of surgical procedures performed to establish sufficient outflow to the systemic circulation in individuals with univentricular congenital heart malformations, such as HYPOPLASTIC LEFT HEART SYNDROME, and MITRAL VALVE atresia, associated with systemic outflow obstruction. Follow-on surgeries may be performed and consist of a HEMI-FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 2 Norwood procedure and a FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 3 Norwood procedure.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. 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 condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
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.
