BACKGROUND Obstructive thrombosis of bioprosthetic valves is considered rare but may have dramatic consequences for the individual patient including repeat valve replacement, thrombolysis, or long-term anticoagulation. Whether the risk of obstructive thrombosis is dependent on the type of bioprosthesis (porcine versus bovine pericardial) is uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS Between 2007 and 2012 a total of 1751 patients received a single stented bioprosthesis in the aortic valve position, 749… CONTINUE READING
