Long-term experience with the Sorin Bicarbon and Edwards Mira mechanical valve prostheses in the mitral position.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Sorin Bicarbon (SB) and Edwards Mira (EM) valves have an identical mechanical design but different sewing cuffs. The purpose of this retrospective study was to analyze the long-term clinical and echocardiographic outcomes after mitral valve replacement with these two valves in a combined population of patients. METHODS We retrospectively… (More)
