Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement and Patient–Prosthesis Mismatch: A Meta-Analysis of 108,182 Patients
This meta-analysis included 70 articles reporting on more than 100,000 patients who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement. The incidence of patient-prosthesis mismatch (PPM) was 53.7%. Moderate and severe PPM was associated with higher mortality, both early and late after surgery. The authors conclude that the implementation of surgical strategies to prevent PPM are important in order to reduce mortality rates.
