Transcather aortic valve replacement

L Wei, Y Yang, C S Wang, H Liu
Conventional surgical aortic valve replacement is still the current "gold standard" in treatment of aortic valve disease, but part of the high-risk elder patients couldn't tolerate the surgical trauma. Now those people could receive timely and effective treatment with the application of transcatheter aortic valve replacement, and the related guidelines have been published in recent years. With its wide use in recent 10 years, different implantation systems, such as SAPIEN, CoreValve, Lotus, ACURATE neo, have been gradually improved and provened in several large clinical trials...

The present article reports a case involving a 29-year-old man who developed severe cardiac failure (New York Heart Association class IV). He had a complex surgical history, beginning with the repair of an anterior sinus of Valsalva aneurysm and closure of a ventricular septal defect at eight months of age. His residual Valsalva aneurysm and mixed aortic valve disease necessitated mechanical aortic valve replacement at 14 years of age. One year later, he developed coagulase-negative staphylococcal prosthetic valve infective endocarditis, necessitating an additional replacement of his valve with a pulmonary homograft...

Transcather aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has rapidly gained worldwide acceptance for treating very high-risk patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. Two valve systems are currently in common use worldwide and under trial in the United States. The Edwards SAPIEN valve has completed its PARTNER trial and has been approved for use in nonoperative patients. The Medtronic CoreValve is currently completing its US pivotal trial. Both plan studies of intermediate-risk patients. The use of TAVR in Europe has grown rapidly and is now about 23% of the total aortic valve replacements done in which a tissue valve is chosen (generally patients over 60 to 65 years of age)...
