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 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 ...
In patients with carcinoid syndrome, the development of carcinoid valve disease typically carries an unfavorable prognosis. We present the case of a patient with significant valvular dysfunction secon...
Progression of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) may occur after mitral valve replacement (MVR). The study aim was to define the independent predictors for new severe TR after MVR to treat rheumatic heart ...
Although transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a steadily expanding treatment for the pathology of the aortic valve, its role in the replacement of native aortic valves following valve-spa...
Valvular heart disease is an increasing population health problem and, especially in the elderly, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The current treatment options, such as mechanical and ...
Valvular heart disease is a major public health issue. The prevalence of valvular heart disease is expected to increase due to an aging population. Valve dysfunction manifests as valve stenosis, regur...
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...
