The role of SU-AVR in tomorrow’s practice of AVR

Conventional Aortic Valve Replacemen (C-AVR) is the golden standard in the treatment of Severe Aortic Stenosis (AS). Despite its tremendous success there are many problems associated with the procedure. A large segment of the AS population is not suitable for surgery because of the excessive risk. In the last years Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) and the use of sutureless valves are new technologies that aim to replace the C-AVR. In this review we compare the three therapeutic modalities in treating severe AS. Based on accumulated data we aspire to describe the clinical landscape of Aortic Valve Replacement (AVR) in the near future. We will try to delineate how sutureless valves will be used in treating severe AS.


KEY WORDS: Aortic stenosis - Aortic valve replacement - Transcatheter aortic valve implantation - Sutureless valves - Conventional aortic valve replacement
