Reintervention after aortic valve replacement: Comparison of three aortic bioprostheses
June 2, 2020
Keywords: aortic valve replacement; pericardial bioprostheses; reintervention
The use of pericardial bioprostheses in aortic valve replacement (AVR) is highly popular due to the lack of need for lifelong anticoagulation. Despite this, few studies have investigated the durability, rates of structural valve degeneration and valve-related events in newer bioprostheses.
In this article Lam et al. present key results from a single-centre, retrospective study comparing three different aortic bioprosthetic valves . The authors assessed rates and causes of reinterventions in patients who underwent AVR with the Trifecta, Mitroflow and Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT Magna Ease valves.
