Abstract

Aim. The aim of the study was to assess the functional status, performance and complications of bioprosthetic valves implanted in forty five consecutive patients at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi between January 2000 and September 2001. Method. The preoperative, operative and postoperative data were collected from case records and at follow up. Results. Hospital Mortality was 6.6% (3 out of 45) and incidence of all complications was 4.9%. There was one valve related death (2.4%). There was no structural failure or anticoagulant related haemorrhage. The incidence of thromboembolism and infective endocarditis were 2.4%. Postoperative gradients were low. Conclusion. The early clinical performance and in vivo hemodynamics of Carpentier Edwards (Porcine) bioprosthesis in our experience is satisfactory.
