Acute kidney injury after transcatheter aortic valve implantation: Impact of contrast agents, predictive factors, and prognostic importance in 203 patients with long-term follow-up.
BACKGROUND Acute kidney injury (AKI) frequently occurs following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and has been related to a worse outcome. We investigated the importance of contrastExpand

Long-term results of 203 young and middle-aged patients with more than 10 years of follow-up after the original subcoronary Ross operation.
BACKGROUND The choice of prosthesis for aortic valve replacement in young and middle-aged patients remains challenging owing to the accelerated degeneration of bioprostheses in these age groups andExpand

Toward individualized management of the ascending aorta in bicuspid aortic valve surgery: the role of valve phenotype in 1362 patients.
OBJECTIVE Decision making regarding the management of the ascending aorta (AA) in patients with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) undergoing valve surgery has hardly been individualized and remainsExpand
