Ebraham Alskaf, Hannah McConkey, Nabila Laskar, Attila Kardos
The Medtronic ATS Open Pivot mechanical valve has been successfully used in heart valve surgery for more than two decades. We present the case of a patient who, 19 years following a tricuspid valve replacement with an ATS prosthesis as part of a triple valve operation following infective endocarditis, developed severe tricuspid regurgitation due to pannus formation.

Background  Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in patients undergoing surgery for mitral valve (MV) increases morbidity and mortality, especially in case of a poor right ventricle. Does repair of mild-to-moderate insufficiency of the tricuspid valve (TV) in patients undergoing MV surgery lead to a benefit in early postoperative outcome? Methods  A total of 22 patients with mild-to-moderate TR underwent MV repair and concomitant TV repair with Tri-Ad (Medtronic ATS Medical Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States) and Edwards Cosgrove (Edwards Lifesciences Irvine, California, United States) rings...

A 78-year-old woman with a history of mitral valve stenosis underwent open mitral commissurotomy in 1976. In 1990, she underwent mitral valve replacement (Medtronic-Hall 29 mm), tricuspid annuloplasty(DeVega method), and pacemaker implantation for bradycardiac atrial fibrillation. However, in June 2012, she developed anemia of unknown cause. Prosthetic valve dysfunction was suspected, because intermittent changes in the left ventricular inflow was detected by echocardiography. Fluoroscopy actually confirmed the presence of prosthetic valve dysfunction...

OBJECTIVE: Aortic valve replacement in minimally invasive approach has shown to improve clinical outcomes even with a prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic cross-clamp (ACC) time. Sutureless aortic valve implantation may ideally shorten operative time. We describe our initial experience with the sutureless 3f Enable (Medtronic, Inc, ATS Medical, Minneapolis, MN USA) aortic bioprosthesis implanted in minimally invasive approach in high-risk patients. METHODS: Between May 2010 and May 2011, thirteen patients with severe aortic stenosis underwent aortic valve replacement with the 3f Enable bioprosthesis through an upper V-type ministernotomy interrupted at the second intercostal space...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Currently, little is known of the diastolic properties of stentless valves that affect stress and strain on leaflets and, hence, their durability. In a pressurized aortic root model, a series of in-vitro tests was conducted to determine how stentless valves behave in diastole, and how they adapt to different annulus-to-sinotubular junction (STJ) ratios. METHODS: Sixteen 25 mm stentless aortic valves (four each of the Sorin Solo, ATS 3F, Edwards Prima Plus and Medtronic FreeStyle) were sutured into a 32 mm Valsalva graft, suspending the commissures into the expandable region (42 mm)...

Sutureless aortic bioprosthesis implantation is an alternative technique in high-risk patients undergoing aortic valve replacement with a possible reduction in the extracorporeal circuit time and reliable haemodynamic features. A 3F Enable (ATS Medical-Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA) has shown very good results. We report the first upward displacement of 3F Enable three months post implantation.

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: The closing 'click' sounds from mechanical heart valve prostheses are often clearly audible for patients and their relatives. These sounds have been recognized as a disturbing factor causing sleeping disturbances or social embarrassment, which patients must endure for the rest of their lives. The study aim was to determine whether the intensity of the transmitted sounds varies according to the type of valve implanted. METHODS: Closing sounds were measured from 15 patients with ATS valves, 29 with Medtronic-Hall valves, and 40 with St...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Several studies have shown the inferior performance of small prostheses in the narrow aortic root. However, modern low-profile mechanical prostheses have improved hemodynamic performance characteristics. By measuring the transprosthetic pressure gradient in vivo, we were able to characterize the hemodynamic features of two prostheses: the ATS Medical (ATS) and the Medtronic Hall (MH) valves. METHODS: From October 1994 to April 2002, 113 patients received an aortic valve replacement (AVR) with either an ATS or a MH valve...

The hydrodynamic performance of four different types of bileaflet heart valve was tested both in steady flow conditions and in a newly designed computerized artificial left heart system. Four 29-mm valves, manufactured by either St. Jude Medical, CarboMedics, ATS Medical or Medtronic Parallel were studied under a steady state and in pulsatile conditions by pressure and flow recording and colour Doppler echocardiography in the 'mitral position' at rest and at exercise (cardiac output range 4-30 l/Min). In the steady state, significant differences were measured at peak flows of 30 l/min, with mean (s...

Transcranial Doppler ultrasound has revealed the existence of cerebrovascular microemboli in asymptomatic patients with prosthetic heart valves. We investigated the relation between the presence and number of emboli signals and valve type. Patients with six types of prosthetic valves (Björk-Shiley monostrut, Medtronic-Hall, Carbomedics, ATS, Carpentier-Edwards standard, Carpentier-Edwards supraannular) were examined using transcranial Doppler ultrasound in two centers. The monitoring time was 30 min over the right middle cerebral artery...
