Heart Valve Disease

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 the study is to provide evidence of safety and effectiveness of the study valve. The rationale is to offer a replacement mitral valve for patients with anatomy that is too...
The Cor-Knot® device is an automated knotting system for valve sutures and prosthetic rings used for more than a year during valve replacements and annuloplasties in cardiac surgery. It r...
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...
Purpose To compare four-dimensional flow MRI with automated valve tracking to manual valve tracking in patients with acquired or congenital heart disease and healthy volunteers. Materials and Methods ...
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...
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...
It is common for patients with rheumatic heart disease to have an enlarged heart. We investigated the prognostic value of cardiothoracic ratio (CTR) in patients with rheumatic heart disease undergoing...
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.
Downward displacement of any one of the HEART VALVES from its normal position. This usually results in failed valve closure.
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.
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...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
