The concept of patient-prosthesis mismatch (PPM) was defined as existing "when the effective prosthetic valve area, after insertion into the patient, is less than that of a normal valve". However, based on the correlation between the mean transvalvular pressure gradient and the corrected effective orifice area (EOA), PPM is currently defined as an EOA corrected by a body surface area (BSA) of <or=0.85 cm(2)/m(2). The surgical procedure will differ for each patient, not only because of… CONTINUE READING
