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.
The purpose of this study is to find out if an approved medicine that is used to lower cholesterol called Lipitor can slow or stop progressive narrowing of the aortic heart valve in patien...
Background: - Aortic valve stenosis is a disease that makes a major heart valve get smaller. This reduces heart function and causes death. Severe aortic stenosis (AS) can be treated in a ...
To establish the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve in patients with severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis who are at low operative risk for standard ...
Aortic stenosis is a common heart valve disease and due to the growing elderly population the prevalence is increasing. The disease is progressive with increasing calcification of the valv...
Current retrospective evidence suggests similar clinical and superior hemodynamic outcomes of the Sorin Freedom Solo stentless aortic valve (SFS) (LivaNova PLC, London, UK) compared to the Carpentier ...
Information on the long-term safety, efficacy and durability of third-generation stentless aortic valves is lacking.
To examine differences and similarities in bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) stenosis occurring during the same age and whether any differences impact outcomes following aor...
Epicardial fat tissue (EAT) is associated with coronary as well as aortic valve calcification. The study aim was to determine whether EAT thickness is different in patients with and without aortic val...
Heart failure (HF) is often associated with different valve diseases, predominantly functional mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. However, the association between HF and aortic stenosis, particularly...
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.
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.
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 occurring in the region below the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region above the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
