  • Modern valvular bioprostheses show good durability, but there are several mechanisms that adversely affect their functionality. Besides dysfunction due to endocarditis (1–6%) or prosthetic valve thrombosis (up to 1%), structural valve degeneration (SVD) is the major concern [1]. Structural valve degeneration is defined as deterioration of the valve’s leaflets/structures resulting in thickening, calcification, tearing, or disruption of the prosthetic valve materials with or without hemodynamic… CONTINUE READING
