    OBJECTIVES While transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has rapidly evolved for the treatment of aortic valve disease, the currently used bioprostheses are prone to continuous calcific degeneration. Thus, autologous, cell-based, living, tissue-engineered heart valves (TEHVs) with...

    OBJECTIVES A major limitation of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is that its long-term outcomes are still unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate survival up to 5 years after implantation and to identify predictors of follow-up mortality in a large cohort of patients...

    Soft tissues, such as tendons, skin, arteries, or lung, are constantly subject to mechanical stresses in vivo. None more so than the aortic heart valve that experiences an array of forces including shear stress, cyclic pressure, strain, and flexion. Anisotropic biaxial cyclic stretch maintains...

  • Pathogenesis of Coarctation of the Aorta. Smith, Laurence H. // Vascular Surgery;Jan/Feb1978, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p30 

    This report concerns the pathogenesis of aortic coarctation. Normal aortic arch development and perinatal circulation are described, and current interpretations of coarctation are examined. Finally, an explanation of the cause of coarctation is proposed. Coarctation is not a primary disease, but...

    Background: Disagreement currently exists regarding the definition of aortic dextroposition. It is suggested that the term be used interchangeably with aortic overriding, along with suggestions that the aortic valve overrides in the normal heart. The dextroposed aorta, however, does not always...

    Whether the dilatation of proximal aorta in patients with bicuspid aortic valve is secondary to hemodynamic effects related to the abnormal aortic valve or a primary manifestation of the genetic disorder remains controversial. We discuss in this paper the recent data on the BAV function and...
