BACKGROUND Nonstented bioprostheses have been associated with lower resting gradients than stented bioprostheses or mechanical valves. We compared the hemodynamic performance of nonstented bioprostheses and mechanical valves with normal native aortic valves at rest and exercise. METHODS Dobutamine echocardiography was used to assess gradients and effective orifice area index at rest and exercise in patients with the Toronto stentless porcine valve (TSPV; n = 13; mean implant size 25.7 mm… CONTINUE READING
