An 84-year-old woman underwent successful, minimally invasive, transapical aortic valve implantation (Edwards SAPIEN 23 mm) to address symptomatic high-grade aortic stenosis and logistic EuroScore of 22%. Echocardiographic control after 11 and 41 days demonstrated the valve in good position without relevant paravalvular leakage or aortic regurgitation. Mean gradients over aortic valve implant were 17 mm Hg and 19 mm Hg, respectively. At echocardiographic follow-up at 6 and 8 months, mean… CONTINUE READING
