Aortic Valve Treatment: from mechanical valves, following sutureless bioprosthesis, up to the transcatheter aortic valve implantation
Waiting for the new guidelines for the valve treatment, the transcatheter aortic valve implantation is indicated up to the low risk patients. However, the heart team decision is the central point for the decision (surgical, minimally invasive, transcatheter). A Special Issue in this field is important to assist the debate in that treatment decisions and reflections.
The topic of interests in this issue include but are not limited to:
- mechanical aortic valve replacement;
- anticoagulant treatment;
- bio-aortic valve replacement;
- new device, new prostheses;
- stented, stentless, sutureless aortic valves;
- transcatheter aortic valves;
- comparing studies;
- follow up studies.
Manuscripts submitted to this Special Issue will be subjected to more stringent selection criteria to ensure the privileged position of accepted contributions. Those that fail to pass this selection will be considered for publication in RCM as regular contributions.
