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.

Echocardiogram in Mitral Valve Prolapse with Mitral Regurgitation (MVP, MR)

All About Cardiovascular System and Disorders

Transcript of the video: Now we will discuss echocardiogram in mitral valve prolapse. But, even though mitral valve prolapse can be detected echocardiographically in many cases, there may not be significant regurgitation and symptoms in many of them. So we will see some of the features of mitral regurgitation.

Robotic mitral valve surgery

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

Totally endoscopic robotic mitral valve repair is the least invasive surgical therapy for mitral valve disease. Robotic mitral valve surgery demonstrates faster recovery with shorter hospital stays, less morbidity, and equivalent mortality and mid-term durability compared to sternotomy.

Spotlight on Advancements in Mitral Valve Repair, Research

DAIC

Barr’s death at 39 from sudden cardiac arrest was caused by mitral valve prolapse—a heart valve defect that can affect the heart’s ability to pump blood. In the past, heart surgeons corrected a faulty mitral valve by replacing it with an artificial one during open-heart surgery. It can, in some cases, lead to death.

Bicuspid aortic valve repair—current techniques, outcomes, challenges, and future perspectives

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is a common congenital heart condition that can lead to some valve-related complications, such as aortic stenosis and/or regurgitation, and is often associated with aortic root dilation.

Mitral Annulus Calcium Score in Patients With Calcific Mitral Stenosis Undergoing Invasive Hemodynamic Assessment

Journal of the American Heart Association

Whether this association is present in calcific mitral stenosis remains unknown.Methods and ResultsThis study was a retrospective analysis of consecutive patients with mitral stenosis secondary to mitral annular calcification (MAC) undergoing transseptal catheterization. Median diastolic mitral valve gradient was 9.4±3.4

Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery

Current surgical options in mitral valve IE include mitral valve repair (MVr) or replacement (M. Valve infective endocarditis (IE) is a potentially life-threatening condition that affects patients’ livelihoods.
