Falk, V; Schwammenthal, E E; Kempfert, J; Linke, A; Schuler, G; Mohr, F W; Walther, T (2009). New anatomically oriented transapical aortic valve implantation. Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 87(3):925-926.

Abstract

Transapical aortic valve implantation has become a routine procedure to treat high-risk patients in some centers. To facilitate optimal positioning, a new self-centering valve design with anatomic orientation of the commissures has been developed. This self-expanding nitinol stent-based valve has 3 support arms that are placed within the aortic sinuses. Here we report implantation of this new valve in a patient. The valve demonstrated excellent function with a low transvalvular gradient.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
