Aortic Valve

January 4, 2024
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.

In this meta‐analysis, the authors performed a pooled analysis of time‐to‐event data from Kaplan-Meier curves of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and propensity‐score matched (PSM) studies comparing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) versus surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in low-risk patients.
November 1, 2023
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and the European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) published a joint press release regarding aortic valve replacement in low-risk patients.

In this recording from the 2023 Transcatheter Heart Valves Greece conference, Dr. Theo Kofidis, the head of cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery at National University of Singapore, discusses the progress that aortic valve replacement techniques have made over the past twenty years.
October 26, 2023
The outcomes of the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients at Five Years (5y PARTNER 3 trial) were presented during the late-breaking clinical trial session of TCT 2023 and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
