Range of Pulmonary Autograft Responses to Systemic Pressure Immediately After Ross Procedure.

Andrew D Wisneski, Zhongjie Wang, Yue Xuan, Julius M Guccione, Liang Ge, Elaine E Tseng,

<h4>Background</h4>Pulmonary autograft dilatation after Ross operation often necessitates reoperation. To understand autograft remodeling, a biomechanical understanding of human autografts after exposure to systemic pressure is required. We previously developed an <i>ex vivo</i> human pulmonary autograft finite element (FE) model to predict wall stress after exposure to systemic pressure. However, autograft ... Read more >>

TAVI as Therapy of Choice for Aortic Valve Disease in Osteogenesis Imperfecta.

Jan-Philipp Minol, Tobias Zeus, Alexander Blehm, Verena Veulemans,

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a syndrome that is often associated with dysfunction of the aortic valve. Because of the resultant fragile vessels and impaired hemostasis, surgical therapy to treat OI is challenging. Previous reports have suggested that transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) might be a suitable treatment for this condition. ... Read more >>
