Clinical Investigation Of The Mitroflow Aortic Pericardial Heart Valve

2014-08-27 03:32:24 | BioPortfolio


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.


Bioprosthetic heart valves offer several advantages over mechanical valves, the most important being freedom from the need for anticoagulation and a low rate of thromboembolic events. Pericardial bioprosthetic valves are known to have hemodynamic performance superior to porcine valves, and the excellent hemodynamic performance of pericardial valves is particularly relevant in patients with a small aortic root. However, long-term durability continues to be the main concern with use of pericardial valves. Although the first generation pericardial valves were withdrawn from the market due to poor durability, further research has indicated that structural failure of early pericardial valves was due to tissue preparation techniques and design failure rather than the pericardial tissue.The unique desing of the Mitroflow Aortic Heart Valve may provide superior hemodynamic performance over other tissue valves.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 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 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.

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.

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.
