- Recurrent pannus formation causing prosthetic aortic valve dysfunction: Is excision without valve re-replacement applicable? Darwazah, Ahmad K // Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery;2012, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p62
Abstract: Prosthetic valve dysfunction at aortic position is commonly caused by pannus formation. The exact etiology is not known. It arises from ventricular aspect of the prosthesis encroaching its leaflets causing stenosis or it may remain localized causing left ventricular outflow tract...
