Data from the Japan cardiovascular surgery database from 2013 to 2014 were analyzed to demonstrate the mortality rate and choice of surgical procedures, especially concerning the selection of valve prosthesis for each valve position and patient age group, and the effects of preoperative complications on mortality and prosthetic valve selection. The proportion of each surgical procedure was compared for each patient age in the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid positions. The proportion of mechanical valve prostheses was 23...

Current surgical treatment options for aortic valve stenosis (AS), as alternatives to that of conventional operation with a midline sternotomy, include sutureless valve replacement (SUAVR) and transcatheter valve implantation (TAVI). Patients with high surgical risk, or those who are judged to be inoperable, are typically good candidates for the TAVI procedure. The best treatment option in patients with an intermediate risk profile, however, the so called "grey zone", is still currently under debate. Sutureless aortic valve replacement has been recently presented as a valid alternative for patients with low- to intermediate-risk...

Mitral valve disease is highly prevalent and quickly leads to development of severe heart failure. Mitral valve disease of degenerative or ischemic etiology affects 7.5 and 9.3% of population older than 65 and 75 years, respectively. "Open" (with cardiopulmonary bypass) surgical repair or valve replacement are not possible in almost half of affected patients because of their complications and concomitant diseases responsible for extremely high risk of these interventions. In the last decade, minimally invasive endovascular technology - transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) - has been widely introduced for correction of aortic valve disease in similar category of patients...

OBJECTIVES: Current sizing strategies suggest valve selection based on annulus diameter despite supra-annular placement of biological prostheses potentially allowing placement of a larger size. We assessed the frequency of selecting a larger prosthesis if prosthesis size was selected using a replica (upsizing) and evaluated its impact on haemodynamics. METHODS: We analysed all discharge echocardiograms between June 2012 and June 2014, where a replica sizer was used for isolated aortic valve replacement (Epic Supra: 266 patients, Trifecta: 49 patients)...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement has emerged as valuable treatment modality for patients with severe aortic stenosis and an unacceptable risk/benefit ratio for open heart surgery, but particularities specific to TAVR and a rapidly growing number of available TAVR prosthesis make post-procedural assessment of valve function challenging. Aim of the present analysis was to collect and pool all available data currently in the literature regarding normal doppler values for transcatheter prosthetic heart valves and to provide a comprehensive overview...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become a widely accepted strategy for the treatment of aortic stenosis in patients at intermediate, high, or prohibitive surgical risk. After >1 decade of innovation and clinical trial experience, the available technology for TAVI has grown enormously, and now includes a myriad of vascular access approaches and innovative valve designs. As a result, the range of patients who can benefit from these advances continues to grow rapidly. Furthermore, given the improved safety profile and clinical success of current-generation devices in randomized trials, the use of TAVI among even low-risk populations is justified in current trials...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become a widely accepted therapeutic option for patients with severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis at intermediate, high, or extreme risk for conventional surgery as determined through a heart team approach. Two valve prostheses are currently available and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved in the United States for TAVR: the self-expandable Medtronic CoreValve (Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA) and the balloon-expandable Edwards Sapien Valve (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine CA, USA)...

Bio-inspired polymeric heart valves (PHVs) are excellent candidates to mimic the structural and the fluid dynamic features of the native valve. PHVs can be implanted as prosthetic alternative to currently clinically used mechanical and biological valves or as potential candidate for a minimally invasive treatment, like the transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Nevertheless, PHVs are not currently used for clinical applications due to their lack of reliability. In order to investigate the main features of this new class of prostheses, pulsatile tests in an in-house pulse duplicator were carried out and reproduced in silico with both structural Finite-Element (FE) and Fluid-Structure interaction (FSI) analyses...

Mechanical valves used for aortic valve replacement (AVR) continue to be associated with bleeding risks because of anticoagulation therapy, while bioprosthetic valves are at risk of structural valve deterioration requiring reoperation. This risk/benefit ratio of mechanical and bioprosthetic valves has led American and European guidelines on valvular heart disease to be consistent in recommending the use of mechanical prostheses in patients younger than 60 years of age. Despite these recommendations, the use of bioprosthetic valves has significantly increased over the last decades in all age groups...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Periprosthetic aortic regurgitation (PPR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) remains an important issue associated with impaired long-term outcomes. The current randomised study aims to evaluate potential differences between the balloon-expandable Edwards SAPIEN-3 and the self-expanding Medtronic CoreValve system with the main focus on post-TAVI PPR by means of novel imaging endpoints, and an additional focus on other clinical endpoints. ENDPOINTS: The primary endpoint of this study is quantitative assessment of the severity of post-procedural PPR using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging...

BACKGROUND: The immediate postoperative warfarin sensitivity for patients receiving heart valve prostheses is increased. Established warfarin initiation protocols may lack clinical applicability, resulting in dosing based on clinical judgment. OBJECTIVE: To compare current practice for warfarin initiation with a known warfarin initiation protocol, with doses proportionally reduced to account for the increased postoperative sensitivity. METHODS: We compared the Mechanical Heart Valve Warfarin Initiation Protocol (Protocol group) with current practice (clinical judgment-Empirical group) for patients receiving mechanical heart valves in an observational before-and-after format...

OBJECTIVES: Neither heart valve repair methods nor current prostheses can accommodate patient growth. Normal aortic and pulmonary valves have 3 leaflets, and the goal of valve repair and replacement is typically to restore normal 3-leaflet morphology. However, mammalian venous valves have bileaflet morphology and open and close effectively over a wide range of vessel sizes. We propose that they might serve as a model for pediatric heart valve reconstruction and replacement valve design...

REVIEW
Trust Saidi, Tania S Douglas
The treatment of rheumatic heart disease presents a medical and surgical challenge, particularly in developing countries, where the disease is prevalent. Most of these countries find it prohibitively expensive to import heart valve prostheses that are required for treatment and are largely manufactured in the United States and Europe. Even if the valves were available, the absence of facilities to conduct open-heart surgery for valve replacement results in many people from developing countries dying needlessly of the disease...

End-stage failing heart valves are currently replaced by mechanical or biological prostheses. Both types positively contribute to restore the physiological function of native valves, but a number of drawbacks limits the expected performances. In order to improve the outcome, tissue engineering can offer an alternative approach to design and fabricate innovative heart valves capable to support the requested function and to promote the formation of a novel, viable and correctly operating physiological structure...

BACKGROUND: In elderly high-risk surgical patients, sutureless aortic valve replacement (AVR) should be an alternative to standard AVR. The potential advantages of sutureless aortic prostheses include reducing cross-clamping and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) time and facilitating minimally invasive surgery and complex cardiac interventions, while maintaining satisfactory hemodynamic outcomes and low rates of paravalvular leakage. The current study reports our single-center experience regarding the early outcomes of sutureless aortic valve implantation...
