BACKGROUND AND AIMS OF THE STUDY Cloth-covered Starr-Edwards ball valves were the first choice in prosthetic substitution at the authors' institution between June 1968 and March 1977. This study investigated, retrospectively, macroscopic aspects of the prostheses at reoperation. METHODS Among 59 survivors who underwent isolated aortic or mitral valve replacement, 12 required reoperation for valve dysfunction (five aortic valve replacements, seven mitral valve replacements). Reoperation was… CONTINUE READING
