The authors investigated 163 CarboMedics bileaflet prosthetic valves--81 mitral prostheses (MP), and 82 aortic prostheses (AP)--to determine acceptable pressure gradients across normally functioning prostheses and effective mitral valve orifice (MVO) area by Doppler echocardiography. In MP, the mean gradient was 3.6+/-1.7 mm Hg, peak transmitral gradient… CONTINUE READING
