Modified porous metal-surfaced Björk-Shiley monostrut heart valve. Long-term study in goats without anticoagulation.


To diminish the risk of thrombosis on a mechanical heart valve without anticoagulation, specific areas of the valve ring should be polished, as thrombosis has not been found to start there. By limiting the porous-surfaced area to the groove and the adjacent part of the flange, the thin endothelialized covering of the carbonized suture ring will continue… (More)
