    OBJECTIVES Percutaneous edge-to-edge devices for non-surgical repair of mitral valve regurgitation are under clinical evaluation in high-risk patients deemed not suitable for conventional surgery. To address guidelines for initial therapy decision, we here report on 13 cases of surgery after...

    Background: Management of an adult patient with aortic coarctation and an associated cardiac pathology poses a great surgical challenge since there are no standard guidelines for the therapy of such complex pathology. Debate exists not only on which lesion should be corrected first, but also...

    The authors reflect on the role of fungi in prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) mortality and morbidity. PVE is said to complicate cardiac valve surgery that occurs within the first 12 months after the surgery. PVE pathogens can reach the valve prosthesis through blood and direct contamination...

    The bacterial endocarditis (BE) is a microbial infection in cardiac valves or other endocardic tissue, related to an undergoing cardiac lesion, with a significant morbidity and mortality. There are several guidelines for the BE prophylaxis whenever medical procedures are invasive or if there are...

    Valvular heart disease is a relatively common finding in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), sometimes necessitating valve surgery. Valve replacement may result in significant early and late morbidity and mortality. Surgical risks are even greater when...
