BACKGROUND The aim of the present study is to compare the early and mid-term clinical and hemodynamic results of the aortic valve replacement (AVR) with a St Jude Medical Regent 19-mm prosthesis (SJMR-19) versus Carpentied-Edwars bovine pericardial 19-mm valve (CE-19). METHODS Between January 2002 and January 2012, 265 patients (Group I) and 58 patients(More)
A 21 years albanian patient was referred with important residual left to right shunt.
