Blood Stasis on Transcatheter Valve Leaflets and Implications for Valve-in-Valve Leaflet Thrombosis

Dr. Ali Azadani

Leaflet thrombosis after valve-in-valve (ViV) procedure has been increasingly recognized. This study aimed to investigate the flow dynamics aspect of leaflet thrombosis by quantifying the blood stasis on the noncoronary and coronary leaflets of a surgical aortic valve (SAV) and a transcatheter aortic valve (TAV) in a ViV setting.
