Trifecta versus Perimount Magna Ease aortic valve prostheses
Keywords: aortic bioprostheses; aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement
Surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) is still offered to elderly populations despite the potential for structural valve degeneration. Currently, however, there is limited comparative data on the long-term durability of different SAVR prostheses.
Reporting outcomes including repeat aortic valve replacement, prosthetic valve endocarditis and late all-cause mortality, Biancari et al. present key results from a retrospective, non-randomised, propensity-matched comparative analysis of the Trifecta and Carpentier-Edwards PERIMOUNT Magna Ease valves. The authors compared the outcomes of 2,216 patients who had undergone the procedure to implant one of the two SAVR prostheses.
