Catheter Based Valve and Aortic Surgery 1st ed. 2016 Edition PDF
by Gorav Ailawadi (Editor), Irving L. Kron (Editor)
This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of catheter based approaches to valve and aortic diseases. The scope encompasses involve all the current and upcoming transcatheter aortic valve technologies as well as mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid valve technologies. Aortic diseases including transcatheter repair of descending aneurysms are included and the upcoming technologies designed to repair aortic dissections, traumatic injury, and ascending arch stent repair are highlighted.
Catheter Based Valve and Aortic Surgery will be a useful tool for cardiac and vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, general cardiologists, and clinicians and researchers with an interest in these exciting new developments in structural heart and vascular diseases.
The treatment of cardiac diseases has had several breakthroughs in the last 70 years, starting with the development of the cardiopulmonary bypass machine, as well as artificial valves and ventricular assist devices. The treatment of coronary artery disease dramatically changed when Andreas Gruentzig presented an early experience with catheter-based angioplasty in 1977. Roughly 10 years later, angioplasty was more common than coronary artery bypass grafting. For the last 60+ years, significant valve disease has been primarily treated with surgical repair or replacement. In 2002, Alan Cribier performed the world’s first
transcatheter aortic valve replacement, dramatically changing the course of catheter- based valve therapies. Over the last 10 years, multiple studies investigating catheter- based aortic valve replacement, including the PARTNER and CoreValve
Pivotal Trials, have led to approval for these devices in high-risk and inoperable patients with severe aortic stenosis. Trials with the MitraClip device have also led to approval in patients with primary mitral pathology at prohibitive risk for surgery. Recently, there have been multiple new catheter-based technologies targeting structural diseases of the heart that are challenging traditional open surgery as well as increasing the patient population who are able to be treated. As such, the purpose of this book is to provide the readers an up-to-date reference for catheter-based valve technology
