The self-expandable stent has control arms to be placed into the native aortic sinuses to achieve correct positioning of the bioprosthesis in a predefined height. The purpose of the lower skirt is to reduce paravalvular leakage. A three-leaflet, bovine pericardium valve is mounted… CONTINUE READING
