Aortic Valve

February 14, 2024
This study addressed midterm outcomes with the hemispherical aortic annuloplasty reconstructive technology (HAART) ring used for aortic valve repair (AVr). Seventy-one patients had AVr using the HAART ring—53 had a trileaflet valve and 18 had a bicuspid valve. Their median age was 54 years old and 79 percent were male.

The aortic valve visualization and pressure (AVP) device is a tool for intraoperative evaluation of the aortic valve after valve sparing or valve repair procedures.

In this session from the 2023 London Core Review Cardiothoracic Surgery Course, Professor Tirone David spoke on the development of aortic valve sparing operations over the last twenty-five years.

The study of acute aortic syndromes, particularly the study of aortic mechanics, is quite challenging due to the dynamic nature of the aorta, complex and variable geometry, and the presence of a valve in constant motion.

Current intraoperative methods for evaluating aortic valve repair often fail to predict the final echocardiographic outcome. The authors developed an aortic valve visualization and pressurization (AVP) device for use during cardioplegia and present results from its use in 24 patients undergoing valve sparing root replacement.

The incidence, predictors, and prognostic impact of rehospitalization following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has not been widely investigated and reported. This information is especially missing based on real-world practice data.

Non-inferiority study designs are frequently used in randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). However, the long-term outcomes of TAVR are unknown, and the concept of non-inferiority is challenging to define and assess.

The authors of this study conducted a systematic review of clinical outcomes after pediatric aortic valve repair (AVr) and examined life expectancy and risk of reintervention using microsimulation. The study included forty-one publications including 2,636 patients with 17,217 years of follow-up (median follow up was 7.3. years).

CTSNet Congenital Editor Prof. Sameh Said spoke with Dr. Ahmad Ali Amirghofran about his pioneering method for valve construction from the right atrial appendage, demonstrated in “How to Make a Valve for the RVOT from the Right Atrial Appendage.”

This surgical video demonstrates the technical details of robotic aortic valve replacement in a sixty-eight-year-old man with bicuspid aortic valve and severe aortic insufficiency.
