Biomechanical analysis of aortic valve calcification and post-procedural paravalvular leak
MetadataShow full item record
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death accounted for 17.3 million people annually. Aortic valve calcification (AVC) and stenosis are the most common diseases among valvular heart diseases. Severe AVC and stenosis will need the standard surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for patients who are at high risk for open heart surgery. Post-procedural paravalvular leak (PVL) is a common complication which occurs around the implanted stent in a significant population of patients who undergo valve replacement, requiring significant ...
