BACKGROUND Doppler-derived hemodynamic data for normal tricuspid mechanical valve prostheses are limited. METHODS A comprehensive retrospective Doppler echocardiographic assessment of 78 normal St. Jude Medical Standard (St. Jude Medical, Inc., St. Paul, MN), CarboMedics Standard (CarboMedics, Inc., Sorin Group, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada), and Starr-Edwards (Edwards Lifesciences, LLC, Irvine, CA) mechanical tricuspid valve prostheses was performed early after implantation. We used all… CONTINUE READING
