Aortic valve disease is a progressive illness that varies from minor valve thickening lacking obstruction of blood stream to severe calcification and alteration of the valve leading to wea...
The aim of the present study is to assess in a "real life" caselist the outcome of three different surgical approches for isolated aortic valve surgery in terms of surgery times, morbidity...
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.
This study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve replacement in aortic Stenosis.
This PAS is an observational, non-randomized, multi-center, single arm, clinical study to evaluate long term safety and effectiveness of the SJM™ Masters Series Hemodynamic Plus (HP) 15m...
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...
Alkaptonuria, a rare disorder of homogentisic acid metabolism, can lead to aortic valvular calcification and stenosis. We present the case of a 71-year-old woman with alkaptonuria-associated aortic st...
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as a less invasive treatment than surgical aortic valve replacement in patients with aortic stenosis. Understanding the anatomy of aortic val...
Minimally invasive aortic valve replacement is commonly used to treat aortic valve disease through smaller incisions and upper hemisternotomy. No major differences in postoperative outcomes have been ...
Crossing of a critically stenosed aortic valve is a pivotal step during diagnostic cardiac catheterization to measure the transvalvular gradient, especially in patients with discordant clinical and ec...
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.
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).
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.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
