PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the longitudinal performance and anti-migration effect of a bovine valved stent equipped with an anchoring mechanism implanted off-pump in the pulmonary position. DESCRIPTION Through a delivery system, the bell-shaped pulmonary valved stents were implanted off-pump in the pulmonary valve position into six sheep by the transventricular approach. Hemodynamic, angiographic, and echocardiographic evaluations were carried out before, immediately… CONTINUE READING
