Impact of prosthesis-patient size on functional recovery after aortic valve replacement.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Prosthesis-patient size mismatch results when an implanted prosthetic aortic valve is of insufficient size for a patient's body surface area. The relation between prosthesis-patient size and functional capacity and adverse postoperative outcome is inconsistent. Our objectives were to examine the impact of valve replacement, continuous prosthesis… (More)
