Abstract: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a new and rapidly evolving treatment option for high-risk surgical patients with degenerative aortic valve stenosis. Long-term results with these new valve prostheses are lacking, and potential valve dysfunction and failure would require valve replacement. We report the first case of surgical valve replacement in a patient with a dysfunctional transcatheter-implanted aortic valve prosthesis 4 months after implantation.

    Objective: Intravertebral pressure (IP) is considered a possible factor influencing cement leakage in vertebroplasty (VP). Reports of measuring IP during the injection of the cement reveal rather low values in the periphery of the vertebral body but fail to determine the situation in the center....

    Artificial disc prosthesis show fair to good short- and mid-term results. Long-term results are becoming apparent now, however, the incidence of late complications with this procedure remain poorly understood. In this report we will analyse late complications and discuss our experiences with...
