New anatomically oriented transapical aortic valve implantation


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.
