RESILIENCE trial study design: evaluating the durability of RESILIA tissue valves in subjects under 65 years old

RESILIENCE trial study design: evaluating the durability of RESILIA tissue valves in subjects under 65 years old

March 26, 2020

Keywords: aortic bioprostheses; aortic valve replacement; structural valve degeneration

Long-term durability is a key concern for bioprosthetic valves, but measuring structural valve degeneration (SVD) has been complicated by different SVD definitions. The RESILIENCE trial is the first prospective study to use both clinical and imaging SVD definitions to assess long-term valve durability.

This summary describes the design of this multicentre, prospective trial. The trial will investigate predictors of durability and time to failure in RESILIA tissue valves, which are treated to minimise free aldehydes and preserve the tissue.

The trial will include up to 250 adults from up to 15 centres. The primary endpoint is time to valve failure due to SVD, while the secondary endpoints are valve leaflet calcification volume and SVD stage 2 or 3. Non‑contrast computed tomography and transthoracic echocardiography will be carried out at 5, 7, 9 and 11 years after valve implantation to assess valve morphology and haemodynamics.
