How a prosthesis in aortic valve replacement is chosen
The long-term results of aortic valve replacement (AVR; n=737) with bileaflet mechanical prosthesis (MP) or Carpentier-Edwards Perimount bioprostheses (BP) were evaluated in different age groups.
Aortic Ball-Valve (Starr-Edwards) Prostheses: A Follow …
Aortic valve replacement (AVR) with a bioprosthesis is standard therapy for severe aortic stenosis, even in the era of transcatheter AVR (TAVR).,Older Asian people tend to be short in stature, and their aortic annulus is smaller than usual, proportionate to their body size. A previous study found that operative mortality generally decreased with increasing body surface area (BSA).Another problem in patients with a larger BSA and a small annulus is prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM).,A previous study showed that the effect of PPM on mortality was greater in patients It has been suggested that PPM has a significant effect on short-term and long-term outcomes.–
Healing Around the Starr-Edwards Aortic Valve Prosthesis in Patients
The Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve, model 9600TFX, and accessories are indicated for relief of aortic stenosis in patients with symptomatic heart disease due to severe native calcific aortic stenosis who are judged by a Heart Team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at intermediate or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality ≥ 3% at 30 days, based on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).
