April 30, 2020
Keywords: bioprosthesis; aortic valve replacement; long-term outcomes; reintervention; mortality
Bioprostheses are the most common valve type used for aortic valve replacement (AVR) in the UK. Early structural valve degeneration of 19- to 21-mm Sorin Mitroflow LX valves led the UK Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to issue a Medical Device Alert in 2017.
This summary presents key data from a single-centre, retrospective study comparing outcomes for the Mitroflow valve and the Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT Magna valve. Theologou et al. analysed data from 2,608 patients, assessing aortic valve reintervention and mortality rates up to 10 years.
