OBJECTIVE Aortic valve replacement in patients with a small aortic annulus is often associated with increased pressure gradients. For this reason, prostheses for completely supra-annular placement have been developed. To evaluate the potential benefit of this design, the present study compared the effectiveness of 1 intra-supra-annular bioprosthesis and 3 completely supra-annular bioprostheses in patients with an aortic annulus diameter of 23 mm or less. METHODS Between August 2000 and… CONTINUE READING
