Pericardial and porcine stentless aortic valves: are they hemodynamically different?

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: We sought to compare the early hemodynamic performance of pericardial stentless aortic valves with that of well-established porcine stentless aortic prostheses. METHODS: A total of 169 patients (97 men and 72 women, aged 73+/-6 years) undergoing aortic valve replacement received either a pericardial (Pericarbon, Sorin Biomedica, Saluggia, Italy; n = 89) or a porcine (Freestyle, Medtronic, n = 80) stentless aortic valve. Aortic valve hemodynamics and root dynamism were assessed by ...
