    The article presents a case study of a 56-year-old woman who was referred for echocardiographic examination. The patient underwent an operation 33 years ago and had a replacement of tricuspid valve with porcine bioprosthesis 25 years before due to rheumatic heart disease. Her medical results...

    We present a case of transient left ventricular outflow tract obstruction after mitral valve replacement with a high-profile bioprosthesis; only the posterior native mitral valve leaflet was preserved. A 76-year-old woman was admitted to our institution with pulmonary edema. Two weeks earlier,...

    Introduction: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation for severe symptomatic aortic stenosis in patients with a previous mitral valve prosthesis is technically challenging, and pre-procedural comprehensive assessment of these patients before transcatheter aortic valve implantation is vital for...

    Prosthetic valve replacement replaces a heart disease with another one. There is no ideal prosthetic valve. All prostheses need to be followed by caution and treatment depends on the type of the prosthesis. Mechanical prostheses add anticoagulant drugs to patient's life and degeneration of...

    OBJECTIVES We previously reported a possible but unusual prosthetic-valve infective endocarditis (PV-IE) occurring on a Cryolife O'Brien Stentless Porcine Xenograft (CLOB) (anatomic damages suggestive of IE but negative inflammatory and microbiological markers). We reviewed all cases of aortic...

    Cardiac hemolytic anemia due to prosthetic valve replacement is a rare but very important cause of acquired hemolytic anemia. Hemolysis in prosthetic mitral and aortic valve regurgitation has been recognized, but the mechanism of hemolysis following mitral and aortic valve replacement is not...

    Abstract: Objective: An animal model has been designed to assess the feasibility of off-pump mitral valve replacement using valved stents. Methods: Glutaraldehyde-preserved homograft was sutured inside a prosthetic tube (Dacron). Then, two self-expandable nitinol Z-stents were sutured on the...

    Mitral valve prolapse is a common condition often associated with mitral regurgitation. Intuitively, one would expect a positive correlation between the severity of mitral valve prolapse and the associated regurgitation. This assumption is overturned by an unusual case of functional...

    In selected high-risk patients, trans-catheter valve implantation is an emerging therapy for a degenerated bioprosthesis in need of repeated valve replacement. During the last two years, valve-in-valve implantations have mainly been performed in the aortic position and only rarely in the mitral...

  • MITRAL VALVE REPAIR: BETTER THAN REPLACEMENT. de Oliveira, J. M. Ferrão; Antunes, Manuel J. // Heart;Feb2006, Vol. 92 Issue 2, p275 

    The article focuses on the significant application of mitral valve repair (MVR) as a method of choice for surgical correction of mitral regurgitation. Significantly, the author assesses the application of MVR as an accepted alternative to prosthetic replacement. The anatomy and physiology of the...
