Diagnosis, treatment &management of prosthetic valve thrombosis: the key considerations. Expert Rev Med Devices. 2020 Feb 21;: Authors: Gündüz S, Kalçık M, Gürsoy MO, Güner A, Özkan M Abstract Introduction: Prosthetic heart valve thrombosis is a life-threatening complication after valve replacement surgery. Although subtherapeutic anticoagulation is the main cause, there are many other conventional and esoteric predisposing factors.Areas covered: The etiopathogenesis, diagnosis and management of prosthetic heart valve thrombosis with particular focus on conventional...

Cardiovalve has a pair of milestones that could help catapult the company into the forefront of the tricuspid valve market. The Or Yehuda, Israel-based company received FDA approval for an early feasibility study of the transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement system and Breakthrough Device Designation for the technology. The study’s primary endpoint is the safety and feasibility of the Cardiovalve technology and procedure in reducing tricuspid regurgitation, with evaluations at 30 days and periodically up to five years. The study will be conducted in collaboration with five leading US hospitals. In a re...

These materials develop some new or improved physical, chemical, mechanical and other properties which do not convoy to their individual components. These composite materials are developed and synthesized in order to fulfill some special applications. These materials are composed of diffe...

We read with great interest the Position Statement about labeling of heart valve prostheses recently published in the Journal.1 The effort to achieve more clarity about the issue should be commended. The authors stated that the geometric orifice area (GOA) of a mechanical prosthesis is the area created by open spaces between the valve ring and the leaflets, and it should not be mistaken for the internal orifice area, which is the area calculated from the internal diameter of the prosthesis. To avoid confusion, it should be emphasized that such definition was different in the past.

Congenital heart valve disease has life-threatening consequences that warrant early valve replacement; however, the development of a growth-accommodating prosthetic valve has remained elusive. Thousands of children continue to face multiple high-risk open-heart operations to replace valves that they have outgrown. Here, we demonstrate a biomimetic prosthetic valve that is geometrically adaptable to accommodate somatic growth and structural asymmetries within the heart. Inspired by the human venous valve, whose geometry is optimized to preserve functionality across a wide range of constantly varying volume loads and diamete...

ConclusionPredicting overall readmissions after open ‐heart valve surgery is difficult as causes of readmissions vary and different causes are associated with different characteristics. Future studies should target reducing cause‐specific readmissions.
