Later aorta operation after aortic valve replacement for bicuspid aortic valve

Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery

We investigated long-term outcomes, particularly later aorta operations and overall death in patients who underwent aortic valve replacement for bicuspid aortic valve without aortic surgery.

TAVI Matches SAVR in Lower Risk Aortic Valve Patients: 10 year outcomes

Cardiology Update

The NOTION trial, a pioneering study, sought to compare the long-term clinical and bioprosthesis outcomes of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR) in patients with severe aortic valve stenosis (AS) at lower surgical risk.

Treatment options for isolated aortic valve insufficiency: a review

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

Aortic insufficiency (AI) is a valvular disease with increasing prevalence in older patients. Traditional interventions included aortic valve replacement with either mechanical or bioprosthetic aortic valves. The modern era provides numerous options for the management of AI which is explored here.

Aortic valve perivascular adipose tissue computed tomography attenuation in patients with aortic stenosis

Heart BMJ

CT attenuation of perivascular adipose tissue provides a measure of vascular inflammation that is linked to prognosis and has the potential to be applied to the aortic valve. We investigated perivascular adipose tissue attenuation around the aortic valve in patients with AS. HU, p=0.099).

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement for Treating Elderly Patients With Severe Aortic Stenosis and Small Aortic Annuli

American College of Cardiology

The goal of the VIVA trial was to evaluate transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) compared with surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) among patients with severe aortic stenosis and a small aortic annulus.

Nordic Aortic Valve Intervention

American College of Cardiology

The goal of the NOTION trial was to compare outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) versus surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in unselected patients with severe degenerative aortic stenosis.

Results of the inoperable and operable with aortic valve endocarditis

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

Objectives To evaluate the results of the inoperable and operable with aortic valve endocarditis, focus on risk factors, significance, and management of destruction of the aortic annulus in aortic valve endocarditis.
